    "Police had previously pleaded with the public, asking people to keep their eyes open for her blue Chevrolet Astro minivan.

    On Monday, Cochrane RCMP discovered Coates’ minivan in a secluded area approximately 50 kilometers west of Cochrane, on the Morley First Nation Reserve.

    Officers conducted a physical search of the area, but didn’t find Coates’ remains."

    Here is a FB page devoted to Sarah:
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Missing-Sara-Georgina-Coates/198944380270139

    Sara Coates, 32, was last seen in the Stanley Park area south of downtown Calgary on Thursday August 2, 2012.

    She is described as 5'2, 110 pounds with long red hair and blue eyes. She was known to also go by the names 'Meka' or 'Meko' and has a small homemade tattoo of a heart on her left knuckle.

    She was known to travel in and around Calgary with her dog and three cats travelling in a Blue Chevrolet Astro Van. The van has a cream colored passenger door and a broken back window. The license plate number is: BBG 5602

    I'm wondering if they found the remains of all of her pets in the van? That would certainly be a bad sign.

    I do not think the pets were recovered. The family has brought awareness to the pets on the FB page and asks to keep an eye out for them.

    If she was living in her van I wonder if she had a cell phone.

    There is also a FB page for a Meka Coates listed in Calgary.

    "Though Coates, who also went by the nicknames Meka or Meko, is from Calgary, she spent a lot of time travelling around and camping, said Const. Karl Sudyk with the missing persons unit.

    <modsnip>...

    But when her mother didn&#8217;t hear from her for several months, she became concerned and reported Coates missing in December.

    Wonder if they've discovered anything that led them to that conclusion, other than the van being found there...

    Maybe they found a note or other evidence in her van to suggest she is deceased, and LE have since been searching for Sara's remains.
    Hope she is still truckin' out there somewhere.

    from the article Lois linked upthread:
    http://www.calgarysun.com/2013/05/0...-sara-coates-who-hasnt-been-seen-since-august

    Can't see a young gal voluntarily (i.e. suicide?) leaving 3 cats and a dog behind without making arrangements for them ... let alone letting them outside her van while she possibly met with misadventure.

    I can see a person driving around with a dog maybe staying in the van without trying to get out an open window (depending on the dog), but 3 cats?? If she normally travelled with them, would they not have been somehow confined to prevent them from going out the window? If 3 cats were caged for their safety, why/how were they released never to be found?

    ETA: Never mind re the 'missing' window. Pics on the MP FB page show the van with the right rear tailgate window covered with plastic and tape.
