Press releases from RCMP across the province. Unedited and straight from the source.
Further to the missing persons advisory issued by Saskatoon Police Service, on THURSDAY, February 13 at approximately 8:00 p.m., Outlook RCMP located the body of missing Bladworth resident Marjory Crabbe in the Danielson Provincial Park north of Lake Diefenbaker. The area where Ms. Crabbe was located is remote and not traveled during the winter months.
Based on information received during the course of investigation, Outlook and Craik RCMP followed up on leads and searched locations Ms. Crabbe was known to frequent. This resulted in Outlook RCMP locating Ms. Crabbe’s 2014 Dodge Ram truck at the entrance to Danielson Provincial Park and Saskatoon Police Dog Services locating her body nearby.
The death of Ms. Crabbe is not considered suspicious nor criminal in nature and the investigation now rests with the Coroner's office. Ms. Crabbe’s family has been notified of her death.
RCMP would like to thank Saskatoon Police Service and the public for their assistance in the search for Ms. Crabbe.

****Apologize for the delay as there were issues with sending it out previously*******
The Broadview and Indian Head RCMP are currently on scene of a rollover involving a semi tractor trailer unit carrying propane. The location is on HWY 1 approximately 2 miles west of Grenfell SK. The semi truck had overturned on February 13, 2014, no injuries were sustained during the initial incident and no leaks were reported.
Tow trucks are in the process of removing the semi-truck, and RCMP expect the eastbound lane of HWY 1 to be closed from 12:00 p.m. until the vehicle is safely removed. The Saskatchewan Department of Highways will be diverting eastbound traffic onto the westbound lane of HWY 1. Traffic for both directions will be down to one lane on the westbound side of HWY 1. Travellers are to expect delays.
The RCMP would also like to remind the public to slow to 60km/hr while passing emergency vehicles and tow trucks. The RCMP will advise when the eastbound lane of Hwy 1 is re-opened.
