OTTAWA — The Ottawa Police Service continues to seek help from the public to locate 39-year-old Mary Papatsie, who was reported missing in June of this year.

The missing person investigation was turned over to the Major Crimes Section in July, due to some red flags suggesting this isn’t just a case of a missing person.

“Anytime there are no sightings or financial transactions being made by the person missing, it’s concerning,” said Major Crimes Unit Staff Sergeant, Bruce Pirt.

He isn’t saying this is a case of foul play, but her disappearance is suspicious. “We need more information and someone in the community knows something that can help solve this case,” said Staff Sgt. Pirt.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ottawa Police Major Crime Section at 613-236-1222, ext. 5493, or anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or by downloading the Ottawa Police app.
