There is quite a bit of coverage on this missing person in Saskatchewan, if people can help add some media stories that would be helpful!

Okay, I see that this woman is missing.  She ran a daycare from her home.  And it had unregistered  guns in it, as well as her husband who likes to give out death threats, and drinks alot..
Adding it all up, this is not looking good for Dorothy. She must have silently suffered and   lived through alot with him.

And then there is  the small question of licensing this home for a day care in the first place, with this dangerous man living there.

There's a problem with dayhomes in that they are not monitored regularly. Also when they are to be visited, the day home owner is forewarned. Licenses are required for more than 5 children, I believe. She may have been a very good provider, but the guns and a man like her husband are certainly issues. Unfortunately most places are short of dayhomes and pretty well anyone is welcome to start one. A situation like this will cause some inspections to be done for awhile.

I hope they find Dorothy alive.

Wondering did it in fact state that the day care was actually in her Home?  I am not sure on that.  Tons of people actually have unregisterd guns actual, like a gun handed down from grandfather to grandson etc. Not to say everyone who has an unregistered gun is bad.  Off the top of my head I probably can count about fifteen people I know.  Lots of older hunters figure the registry is hogwash and never bothered I believe.  These weren't hand guns they were rifles right. 

This is scarey. wondering why the husband didn't get the guns etc out of the house when she first went missing, thats what I would do , then let them search the house. jmo

Quote: The man's address in court documents is the same as Woods's Riel Crescent home, where she also ran the Artsy Fartsy Daycare. He was arrested and charged on Friday. Investigators obtained a search warrant for the residence and searched it on Friday and Saturday.

It's unclear why a search warrant was required for Woods's own home.

"For whatever reasons, our investigators required warrants," police spokesperson Alyson Edwards said.

Police seized four guns from the home, including a Winchester 12-gauge shotgun, a Davenport 10-gauge shotgun, an FN rifle and a CVA Apollo .50-calibre Muzzleloader, according to court documents. Charges range from unsafe storage of a firearm to possessing unlicensed firearms.unquote

I hope Dot is safely found.

JB yep they are all rifles.  One is an antique.  LOL I do police combat training would have loved to see the muzzle loader.  I think they are all innocent enough guns, not like the ones punks are running around shooting people with.  Not to say they were not used of illegal purposes.  But I think this fellow had them for years and years

About a hundred gathered in Kiwanis Park to show support and muster hope for missing Saskatoon woman

A candlelight vigil for Dorothy Woods was held at the Vimy Memorial in Saskatoon's Kiwanis Park on Saturday night, to support the missing woman's friends and family, and send a message of hope.

Woods' brothers Frank and Lawrence Carter were there, and both spoke to thank everyone for coming out, encourage people to keep searching and putting up posters, and struggled against visibly intense emotions to maintain a level of hope and optimism.

Frank Carter focused on his excitement at how powerful the drive has been to get his sister's name and face out in the public eye.

"It's been incredible, every business that's put up posters," said Frank.

"Everywhere you drive in the city you're seeing [them]."

He was overjoyed that people in both Regina and Prince Albert were putting them up.

But if he could speak to Dorothy now, he would have one very simple message.

"Dorothy just come home, everybody really misses you," he said.

 We'll get together and have a good Christmas meal."

Lawrence Carter was happy to see so many people out in support "to get his sister home safe and sound".

"Help from the roller girls has been tremendous at this difficult and trying time."

Frank and Lawrence both asked people to contact the city police if they have any information about Woods' location, by contacting Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Woods was last seen in the early hours of Nov. 12 and was reported missing three days earlier.

Police spokesperson Alyson Edwards has called the case "very sensitive", and Woods' husband David has been deemed a person of interest. Unlicensed guns and a computer were seized from their Saskatoon home, and he has been in court twice since his wife's disappearance on unrelated charges.
