Missing person believed to be victim of homicide – UPDATED

Calgary, Alberta – Since our last plea to the public for information regarding the disappearance and subsequent murder of Tammie Doreen HOWARD, also known as ‘Irish’, we now have reason to believe that evidence related to her death may be located east of Calgary.

Irish was last seen in December 2016 and was reported missing by her family in April 2017, at which time a police investigation was initiated.

With the help of the public, and through our investigative process, we now believe that evidence related to Irish’s death may be located on Siksika Nation land.

We will be conducting a search today, Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022, for potential evidence on Siksika Nation land with our partners from the Gleichen RCMP and the Calgary Search and Rescue Association, as well as members of our Missing Persons Unit and Public Safety Unit.

We would like to thank the Siksika Nation for allowing us to conduct our search.

The investigation into the murder of Irish is ongoing and we ask that anyone who has information regarding her disappearance or death to contact police.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:

Case #17167796/4700

Calgary Police Service

BACKGROUND

Calgary, AB, 12 April 2019

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to locate a woman who was last heard from in late 2016.

Tammie Doreen HOWARD, 49, was last heard from on Saturday, Dec. 24, 2016. HOWARD was reported missing by her family in April 2017. Friends close to HOWARD also know her by the name ‘Irish’.

After HOWARD was reported missing, an investigation was initiated. In November 2017, it was believed HOWARD had resurfaced as reported by a local, third-party agency. After investigating this believed sighting, police concluded it was unfounded.

The investigation to locate HOWARD continues and at this time all leads have been exhausted and police are reaching out to the public for information.

HOWARD is described as approximately 5’1” tall, 130 pounds, with a slim build, red hair and blue eyes. It is uncharacteristic for HOWARD to go this long without contacting family members and they are concerned for her welfare.

A photo of HOWARD is available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Anyone with information about HOWARD’s whereabouts, or anyone who had contact with HOWARD in the days leading up to Saturday, Dec. 24, 2016, is asked to contact the police non-emergency number at 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers anonymously through either of the following methods:
