RCMP say human remains found near Dawson Creek, BC, have been identified as a woman who was reported missing late last year.

Police say Renee Didier (Supernant) was found on May 18 near the Kiskatinaw River, which runs west of the northeastern BC city.

The Cree woman, who was a mother of two, was last seen on gas station surveillance footage from Dec. 3, 2023 and was reported missing on Dec. 7.

Didier, who was 40 years old when she disappeared, is one of four people to go missing from Dawson Creek — a city in the Peace River region around 740 kilometers north of Vancouver and 20 kilometers from the Alberta border that has a population of 12,000 — last year, prompting community-wide searches and questions about public safety.

Among the others to go missing are Didier’s cousin, Darylyn Supernant, who was last seen on March 15, 2023.

Also missing are Dave Daniel Domingo, a 24-year-old believed to have been in a rural area near Dawson Creek on Aug. 29 when police responded to reports of a possible shooting.

Cole Hosack, a 24-year-old from Prince George, was last seen on New Year’s Eve at the same bar Didier was spotted shortly before she disappeared.

In addition to the discovery of Didier, police found human remains on April 19 on the 219 Road near Saskatoon Creek, north of the city. They have not announced a positive identification in that case.

Remember as ‘fun loving’ by grandmother

In a previous interview with CBC News, Didier’s grandmother Verna Cardinal described her as a “fun loving” mother of two.

“She was always laughing a lot,” Cardinal said.

She expressed concern that Didier had been associating with people involved with drugs shortly before her disappearance, but said it was still unusual for her to not make contact. Cardinal said she was supposed to pick up her granddaughter up the night she disappeared but “she never did call me.”

The family has asked for privacy in the wake of Didier’s discovery.

Anyone with information about Didier’s death or disappearance is asked to call Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
