Search continues for Mackenzie Trottier, 11 months after Saskatoon lady disappeared

Almost a year after the woman’s disappearance from Saskatoon, Mackenzie Lee Trottier’s family and friends continue their tireless search for her.

Family, friends and other supporters gathered in downtown Saskatoon for the Find Mackenzie Trotting rally on Sunday.

Her father, Paul Trottier, has counted the days and hours since the Mackenzie family last saw them: 335 days or 8,040 hours.

Many family and friends gathered on Sundays, holding up posters or putting on shirts for Mackenzie. Your father says that community support means the world to him.

“To see all of these people out here on a cold morning is incredibly warming for our family, to know that we have that kind of support, it’s really spectacular.”
said Paul Trottier.

Mackenzie, 23, was last seen leaving her home on the 300 block of Trent Crescent, Saskatoon on December 21, 2020.

Her family has never stopped looking for her since then.

Mackenzie’s sisters Sadie and Laurenne Trottier say the family supported each other throughout the time Mackenzie was missing. They told reporters on Sunday that they still need to look for the good in life and have hope.

The family prays that they will be found as the constant waiting is unbearable.

They said that when they know that people, including strangers, are taking care of the Search and have joined the Search, they are not alone.

“The support from everywhere, almost all over the world, is kind of crazy – seeing how many people care and want to help someone they never knew and a family they never knew,” said Sadie.

Paul says there were a number of tips, but at that point none led to anything.

Paul admits that his daughter would probably be a little embarrassed to see all the support, but she would also be honored, a sense of community and belonging, and love.

He remembered some of his dearest memories of Mackenzie, like when she was singing outside.

“She had a wonderful voice and I know I am a father, but she really had a great voice. I would love to hear her voice again and sing with her out in the wilderness again, “Paul told reporters.

“If we don’t bring it to the attention, it’s really going under the radar. I think it’s really important for all of us to remember that there are people who are missing and there are people who are missing regularly, “said Paul.
