Missing Thompson teen believed to be in Winnipeg, police say

Police say a missing teenage girl from northern Manitoba was spotted in Winnipeg last week — and they believe Skylar Mason is still in the city.

The 17-year-old was last seen on July 9 in Thompson, Man., a city about 650 kilometres north of Winnipeg, RCMP said in a news release on Sunday morning.

Mounties confirmed Skylar was in Winnipeg on July 13.

The teen was last seen wearing a grey shirt, black pants and a black backpack, RCMP said. Skylar is described as five feet, two inches tall and weighing 150 pounds.

In a separate news release later Sunday, the Winnipeg Police Service said they’re also looking for the teen. That alert said Skylar has a mole in the right side of her nose and wears braces, and that she has shoulder length black hair and brown eyes.

Winnipeg police said they’re concerned for the teen’s well-being.

Anyone with information is asked to call either Thompson RCMP at 204-677-6911, the Winnipeg police missing persons unit at 204-986-6250, or their nearest police service.
