    "Eleven years ago to the day, Maggie Burke left her Edmonton apartment at 118th Avenue and 95th Street to meet a friend.
    "It's been a nightmare," said her mother Marie Burke. "A nightmare that we haven't really been able to wake up from."

    Burke spoke to reporters Wednesday at an Edmonton police news conference, near where her 21-year-old daughter disappeared so many years ago, in an effort to generate new tips in the case."

    "Even though it's been 11 years, we think somebody out there might know something, as small as a tip it might be," said Sgt. Neil Zurawell, of the police service's missing person's unit. "They might think it's insignificant, but it could make the difference."

    Zurawell said police have little to go on in the case, one of 83 historical files dating back to the 1970s that are being investigated.

    Police have their suspicions, but don't have enough information to know exactly what happened, he said".

    "Maggie Burke was 21-years-old when she vanished from central Edmonton. It’s believed she was going to meet a friend. Burke was involved in the sex-trade industry and a “high-risk lifestyle,” the RCMP’s Project KARE team said in a missing person alert released in April 2005. Investigators believe foul play was involved in her disappearance.

    Marie Burke says she knows her daughter struggled with drug addictions, “but it’s not who she was.”

    “She is a very loving person. She loved to work with animals, she wanted to be a veterinarian. She worked in restaurants as a server. She had a full life. She also has an 11-year-old daughter who wonders what’s happened to her mother.”

    respectfully snipped for conciseness

    Her daughter is 11, she went missing 11 years ago. She disappeared immediately after giving birth. I feel like that's waving some flags.

    However, this statement:

    is waving SO MANY MORE FLAGS. All of them are red. Or at least very intense fuchsia.

    Sometimes I think just being indigenous is considered a high risk lifestyle for LE and many others.. it's so sad..

    While Maggie is another indigenous missing woman, she is classified as high-risk lifestyle due to being a STW and having a history of drug addiction.

    Did Maggie and some of the other missing young women caught up in this cycle, unable to leave?
