Staff Sgt. Greg Abbot with the RCMP spoke at a press conference at Chief Whitecap Park, saying they have people out searching, including the Saskatoon Police Service, volunteers, RCMP, Prince Albert Grand Council, FSIN, and underwater and surface water search teams.

He added that they are looking at other parts of the investigation, but the main focus is at the park.

“We don’t have any indications of foul play right now. We are focusing on locating them, in this area. As you know, this is where the truck was located, so we’re focusing on that,” said Abbot.

He noted that there’s been no new evidence since Sunday.

FSIN Vice-Chief Heather Bear disagreed with RCMP, saying that FSIN was not ruling out foul play.

“There are so many questions right, more than answers right now, and we need answers. And the full force of FSIN is here,” said Bear.

Bear added that this is not new for them, but she was shocked that one of their own went missing.

Patricia Dorian, Walker’s sister, pleaded for anyone with information to please come forward.

“We have a lot of family and friends here that are concerned about her, where she is, and where Vincent is,” said Dorian.

“We love her and we miss her and Vincent.”

A candlelight vigil is being held Tuesday night at 8:30 p.m. for Walker and her son at Chief Whitecap Park.
