    Canadian Police May Have Greatly Underestimated How Many Indigenous Women Are Missing


    New numbers are more than three times higher than the force's initial counts.

    The number of indigenous women who have disappeared or been killed in Canada may be much larger than previously estimated, officials said this week.

    Research from the Native Women’s Association of Canada documented about 3,000 more cases than the Royal Canadian Mounted Police reported in 2014, Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett said on Monday.

    Vancouver-based initiative Walk4Justice compiled a list -- which the NWAC acquired -- of 4,232 indigenous women who have been killed or have gone missing since the 1980s. This figure stands in stark contrast to the RCMP's initial count of 1,181.

    "The gulf between 1,200 and pushing 4,000 is huge," NWAC President Dawn Lavell-Harvard told CBC News. She also stressed the importance of instituting a formal database for information about the cases.

    Mystery of missing, murdered women along "Highway of Tears"

    Paul LaRosa is a "48 Hours" producer. He investigated the cases of missing and murdered women along a Canadian Highway for the episode, "Highway of Tears." The episode airs Saturday on CBS as part of a double feature, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

    The Highway of Tears sounds like something out of a Stephen King thriller -- a long stretch of road in an isolated, beautiful Canadian countryside where at least 18 and possibly many more girls and women have been murdered or gone missing since 1969.

    "It`s a place that can be a good friend to evil," said Bob Friel, an investigative journalist who has traveled this notorious road in British Columbia, Canada. "48 Hours" will feature the highway on Saturday's 9 p.m. broadcast.

    B.C. report finds indigenous girls in care more likely to face sex abuse

    Indigenous girls in the B.C. child-welfare system are as much as four times more likely to be victims of sexual violence than non-indigenous girls, according to a watchdog report that describes a failing, ad hoc approach to preventing and responding to the sexual victimization of children in care.

    Families walk Highway of Tears to honour missing, murdered Indigenous women
    The annual journey, made by Radek and others who have lost loved ones, will span five days this year and cover 350 kilometres between Prince Rupert and Smithers. Vehicles will accompany the walkers who will cover sections of the route in a relay fashion.

    Commissioners of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls are set to join the walk on Sept. 25 before community hearings are held from Sept. 26 to 28 in Smithers. This is the second set of hearings held to date by the inquiry, after it visited Whitehorse in May.
