The Prince Albert RCMP detachment led efforts throughout the week to locate Bird, who had previously last been seen at an Aug. 21 gathering on Sturgeon Lake First Nation.
“Our file was the missing person file,” detachment clerk Allison Irvine said of Bird. “She has been located and reunited with her family.”
Police located two vehicles associated with the missing woman before finding her. A blue 2006 Hyundai Sante Fe is currently in the possession of the Prince Albert RCMP, while a white 2000 Pontiac Grand Am is in the possession of Bird’s family.
With their discovery of Bird, the RCMP’s investigation into the missing person has concluded and a criminal investigation will now take place

Because the incident stems from Prince Albert, local city police will be handling the criminal investigation going forward and will provide any further updates.
“A criminal investigation was started about the events from the previous week … and that will be investigated by the Prince Albert Police Service,” Sgt. Brandon Mudry said.
He added, “Additional details will follow when appropriate.”
