HEATHER TUCKATUCK

 23,of Kuujjuaraapik, NWT, disappeared on Dec. 24, 2001.  She was last seen
near the airport in an intoxicated state.

Her  family reported her disappearance to the Kativik Regional Police Force on
Dec. 28. Police and Rangers have been looking for the young woman in and around
the community and  in Montreal, where she had been living until  October, 2001.


"She might be under the snow, she might have fallen into the river or she might
have gone to Montreal," said KRPF Capt. Larry Hubert.


Police do not suspect foul play, and have reported Tuckatuck as a missing
person.

so sad almost like no one cares , perhaps because she was native or perhaps because she was drunk.  Searching for updates on they young girl but no luck so far.

We need care, this girl needs to be returned to family

I think it's also the assumption that she probably froze to death so they believe they are not looking for a missing person but have found no body so they still have to report her as such. 

Chances are, if you go missing up north in winter, you will succumb to the elements, especially if you were drinking.  She might not have even felt the first signs of hypothermia.

What I wonder is, based also on the fact that many people who go missing up north do so under odd circumstances, is it that a lot of them drown?  Because that would explain why a body cannot be locate, if they are under ice.  Aside from that though, you would think something would be found.

Wonder why no one reported her missing for four days?  Was she at the airport because there was a pre-existing flight plan?
