It has been 18 years since Keepness went missing from her home in Regina. She has never been found but the search continues.

A reward of $25,000 was originally introduced in 2004, one week after Keepness’s disappearance, before being doubled in 2014. Police hope the reward continues to bring new information to light in hopes of finally finding Keepness.

The triple homicide victims were a refugee family who had lived in Regina for around two years, having moved from a refugee camp in Thailand. The homicide occurred in 2010 and no arrests have been made.
