The family of a missing Fort Saskatchewan woman says the RCMP didn't alert the public fast enough about her disappearance.
Dana Jane Turner, 31, was last seen on Aug. 14. RCMP issued a missing persons bulletin Wednesday night.
Turner's mother, Wendy Yurko, believes RCMP should have acted sooner to help find her daughter.
"The most frustrating part is being told by RCMP officers in Fort Saskatchewan is that they've already done everything they can when I don't feel that almost anything was done," she said. "I do not feel that anyone took this seriously."
Dana Jane Turner, 31, was last seen on Aug. 14 in Edmonton. RCMPTurner was last seen at 7 a.m. on Aug. 14 at the Quality Inn West Harvest in Edmonton with an unknown man. She was driving a Discount rental car, a 2011 blue four-door Mazda A3I, with Alberta licence plate J22840.
Turner left her mother's home without calling her three children currently visiting relatives outside of Alberta, and without her thyroid medication.
"She's really sick... and it's left at her mom's. She hasn't had it in 12 days, so she's dying right now without it," her friend Rachelle Leger said. "She could have been saved in the first couple of days, but not enough was done I don’t think."
Turner is described as approximately 5 foot 7, about 155 pounds with long, curly medium brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about Turner's whereabouts is asked to call Fort Saskatchewan RCMP at 780-992-6100 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
