Manitoba. Yorkton RCMP have now escalated the search to British Columbia:
Saskatchewan RCMP have escalated a search for a missing 17 year-old girl to a Child Search Alert. Mekayla Bali was last seen at the STC Bus Depot in Yorkton at 1:45 p.m. on April 12, 2016.
Since Mekayla was reported missing by her family on April 12, 2016, investigators have been working diligently following leads to locate her.
Police have received information regarding an unknown adult male who may have information relating to Mekayla’s actions before she was last seen. This male may have been with Mekayla at the STC Bus Depot on 1st Avenue North in Yorkton. This unknown male has a tattoo below his left elbow of a cross with flames around it. He is
Male between 40 and 50 years old
5’10” to 6’2” in height
Stocky, medium build with muscular arms
Wearing a dark navy vest jacket with an elastic waist band in back
Has a tattoo on his triceps/bicep area of his right arm that appeared to be a circle with several designs with multiple colors
Has a scar or scratch below his left eye on his cheek approximately ¾ to an inch in length, appeared to be red in color
This individual is NOT a suspect. Investigators simply wish to identify this individual and speak with him to assist with efforts to locate Mekayla.
While Mekayla was last seen in the STC Bus Depot in Yorkton, investigators have spoken with the employees working at the bus depot and determined she did not board a bus on April 12. Rumours have circulated that Mekayla is in either Regina or Saskatoon. Additionally, several sightings and tips have been reported to police. These have all been investigated and Mekayla has not been located.
Investigators have found no evidence Mekayla has a passport and investigators have no reason to believe she has left Canada. However, as is standard practice in an investigation like this, our law enforcement partners at border crossings have been notified the RCMP is looking for Mekayla. All leads are being thoroughly investigated and investigators are not ruling out any possibilities.
At this point in the investigation, there is no indication of foul play; however, we must locate and speak with her to confirm her safety. Mekayla’s family is concerned for her well being, and like us, want to ensure she is safe.
