Calgary police are looking for evidence they believe to be related to the homicide of a woman who has been missing since 2016.

Forty-nine-year-old Tammie Doreen Howard, also known as Irish, was last heard from on Christmas Eve in 2016. Her family then reported her missing in April 2017.

Police said they have spent the last five years following up on many leads and have come to the conclusion she was murdered.

In a news release on Saturday, police said they will conduct a search on Aug. 6 for potential evidence on Siksika Nation land with the help of Gleichen RCMP, the Calgary Search and Rescue Association and members from the missing persons and public safety units.
