Carol Bigtobacco, Missing from Siksika First Nation, Alberta since 1983




The picture is of Carol when she was a baby, but she disappeared from the Siksika First Nation in Alberta when she was 8 years old on March 19th, 1983. She was not reported missing until 3 years later on November 25th, 1986. Her father would only say “confusion” led to the lack of a report.

Carol’s parents reportedly had “domestic problems” and would leave Carol in the care of different family members throughout the reserve. Her parents stated they thought Carol had been placed in a foster home, but her foster parents said that she was with one of them.

The body of a child was found in 1989 and though Carol’s father said he was satisfied she was found, the remains could not be conclusively determined to be Carol’s. One of her boots was also found in the area.

Carol was last seen near Bow River in Gleichen. She has not been heard from since and remains missing.

If you have any information regarding the disappearance or whereabouts of Carol Bigtobacco, you are encouraged to contact the Gleichen RCMP at 1-403-734-3056.

DOB: Not Available. Circa 1974.
Description: Carol was 4’11 and 88 pounds at the time of her disappearance. She has black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a brown, nylon coat and one boot (the other was later recovered).
