There is still no trace of a missing Saskatoon woman nearly two weeks after she first disappeared.
Dorothy Ann Woods was last seen leaving her home in the south side of Saskatoon on Nov. 12. The Saskatoon Police Service say the circumstances of her disappearance are suspicious.
The 45-year-old mother of two, known to friends as Dot, was an active member of the Saskatoon roller derby community. Dozens of her teammates and friends have been canvassing the city distributing flyers and going door-to-door for leads. They meet daily in the Cumberland Ave. Tim Hortons.
“It’s confusing because it’s not like her,” said Jenn Munro, a former roller derby teammate of Woods’. “It’s surreal because you don’t think you’d ever know anyone that would go missing. You feel like you’re in The Twilight Zone. It doesn’t feel real.”
Munro heard about Woods’s disappearance on Facebook. “I thought it was a joke,” she said. However, she soon realized that her friend was indeed missing.
“She’s a very active person in the community, very outgoing and generally a happy person,” she said. “Everybody’s really baffled as to what happened to her.”
Police have a person of interest in the case: a 49-year-old male who faces two firearms related charges which were laid following the execution of warrants at his home. He appeared in provincial court Nov. 21. However, the missing person case is still open and Woods is still considered missing, according to Alyson Edwards of Saskatoon police.
