Vancouver RCMP identify remains of missing Indigenous woman, Tatyanna Harrison
Months after a young Indigenous woman was reported missing from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, police say that a body found on May 2 in Richmond, BC has been positively identified as a match.
Tatyanna Harrison, a 20-year-old Indigenous woman was reported missing by her mother, Natasha Harrison, on May 3, after she had not been heard from since the end of March.
“This is heartbreaking news to everyone who knew and loved Tatyanna, and to the many strangers who came together to search for her when she disappeared,” Constable Tania Visintin said in a press release.
“Although we are now able to provide some answers, many questions remain, and we will continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding Tatyanna’s disappearance.”
VPD investigators said that they believe Tatyanna had relocated to Vancouver from Surrey for several weeks before her disappearance.
She last texted her mother from somewhere on the Downtown Eastside on March 24.
