Family hopes for news of missing loved one
It's been three months since the disappearance of 22-year-old Claudette Osborne.
On Friday her family gathered on the steps of the Manitoba Legislature, hoping a vigil will help bring her home.
Osborne has four children, six sisters, and many friends who are desperate to find her.
"I wake up thinking about her and go to bed thinking about her. I wonder if today is the day that's she's going to come home," Osborne's sister, Bernadette Smith, told CTV News.
Smith says her sister was involved in a high risk lifestyle and battling drug problems; but they say she was trying to turn her life around.
Osborne was last seen July 24th at the corner of Selkirk Avenue and Charles Street.
Three months later, police say their investigation into her disappearance is ongoing.
"We're just hoping she's somewhere out there safe and that she comes home alive," Smith said.
Right now there are more than 500 aboriginal women missing in Canada.
The Winnipeg Police Service Missing Persons Unit investigates between 80 to 120 missing persons files daily.
Of those, 35 are on people who have been missing for three months or more.
If you can help find Claudette Osborne, you're asked to call the Winnipeg Police Service Missing Persons Unit at (204) 986-6050 or the Police Non-Emergency line at (204) 986-6222.
There is a $2000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts.
