Winnipeg Police Service Media Release
For Immediate Release

Missing Person – Investigation: R19-56450

The Winnipeg Police Service continues to request the public's assistance with locating a missing 31-year-old female, Miranda BELLE. She was last seen during the evening of Saturday, August 17, 2019, in the Grant Park area of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

BELLE is described as Metis, 5’6” in height, 100lbs, with medium length brown hair and brown eyes.

Investigators with the Winnipeg Police Missing Persons Unit, in collaboration with the Homicide Unit, believe the circumstances around Bell's disappearance are suspicious and that she may have been a victim of foul play.

Police are requesting residents and businesses in and around Winnipeg to check their properties, fields, and outbuildings as well as consider reporting anything suspicious that may have occurred during the evening of Saturday, August 17, 2019.

The Fall season brings a loss of foliage in the woods as well as a significant number of hunters roaming rural areas. Investigators want to remind people to be cognizant of any unusual items they may find. Items that may seem insignificant to the casual observer may have significant relevance to the investigation. If anything suspicious is located, do not touch it or disturb the area around it. Instead, the public is asked to immediately call police.

Investigators have identified a vehicle that may be associated with Miranda’s disappearance. The vehicle is a grey coloured 2012 Dodge Caravan.
