- Kaitlynn Nordal | May 29, 2019
A young woman originally from the Cowessess First Nation has been reported missing.
Jenaya Wapemoose, who has a five-year-old daughter, was last seen on the 1800 Block of Ottawa Street, and on the 12 block of Retallack Street in Regina.
Wapemoose had been staying with family and friends in Regina up until her disappearance on April 7, 2019.
“She always keeps in touch with friends and family, especially when it comes to her daughter,” said auntie Debbie Delorme in a press release. “Her daughter’s fifth birthday was on May 13th and she hasn’t contacted anybody and that’s not like her. She would never miss it or leave and forget about her baby.”
Wapemoose, who adores her friends and family, is described as a caring and friendly person.
“She was outgoing, she was funny, she liked to joke, she liked doing her makeup [and] she was a good mom,” said sister Jackie Wapemoose. “She tried her best to be there for my brother and sisters she was just an outgoing spirit…hopefully someone sees the article or the news clips. I just hope she comes home safe.”
She added that her sister had one specific nickname she would answer to, baby Edna.
“She called herself baby Edna,” said Wapemoose. “Our mothers name is Edna so she referred to herself as a baby Edna.”
At this time Wapemoose can only remember certain things her sister was wearing the last time she seen her. She had on a Jordan snapback hat and three sweaters. She describes the outer sweater as a black zip up. She also remembers that she could see a hood poking out of it that was army patterned.
She believes the last people to see her were the friends she was staying with in Regina around 9 or 10 o’clock on the night she went missing.
She explained that she is worried that something has happened to her sister as it is not like her to not be in contact in one way or another.
Wapemoose is described as 5’4 and roughly 120 lbs. with light brown shoulder length hair and light brown eyes. On the left side of her chest he has a tattoo that says “Anabelle” and “Wahpimoostoosis” on the right side of her chest. She also has the words “Each day is a gift & not a right” tattooed behind her left ear.
