Saskatoon police are asking for the public’s assistance locating a 27-year-old woman.

Dakota Sunshine McKay was last seen on Tuesday and was reported missing after she failed to return to her 200-block Winnipeg Avenue North home.

Family members say she is in a vulnerable state and it is out of character for her not to return home.

McKay is described as 5’3” tall, 140 lbs, with brown eyes and short, straight blonde and grey hair.

She has a tattoo of a butterfly on her lower back and was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt, denim shorts, brown sandals and was carrying an Adidas backpack.

Anyone with information on Dakota McKay’s whereabouts is asked to contact Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300.
