Saskatchewan RCMP are searching for a 74-year-old woman who became separated from another person during mushroom picking northeast of kilometre 30 on the Hanson Lake Road, Highway 106.
According to police, Lois Chartrand, an experienced mushroom picker, was last seen around 11 a.m. on Aug. 4, when she became separated from another person she was with. That person called police when they were unable to find her.
“Lois is described as being approximately 90 pounds and is 5 feet tall,” an RCMP press release states. “She was last wearing blue jeans and a blue jacket.”
Police have communicated with Chartrand through a radio she is carrying, as recently as 6 a.m. Friday, but she has not yet been located.
