By | August 15, 2020

A search is underway in northern Manitoba today for a teenager who’s been missing for almost a month.

Volunteer searchers as well an RCMP team are looking for Tammy Nattaway on the Garden Hill First Nation.

The 16-year-old was last seen on July 20th in the community, according to the RCMP.

Mark Barkman is one of the volunteer searchers who’s been looking for the girl in recent days. He said about 300 people are taking part in the search Saturday, and people from neighbouring communities have come to help look for the missing girl.

“We’ve got to find her. We have to find her,” Barkman said in a phone interview Saturday.

Garden Hill First Nation is about 475 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

RCMP have previously said they believed Tammy could have been in Winnipeg and believe it’s possible she travelled to the nearby St. Theresa Point or Wasagamack First Nations.

Tammy is about five feet tall and 100 pounds. She has short black hair and brown eyes.
