A woman reported missing in Thunder Bay since the beginning of the month was sighted in Winnipeg last week.

Thunder Bay police reported Wednesday that with the assistance of Winnipeg police, investigators have confirmed that 25-year-old Latanya Tait was seen on Portage Avenue in the Manitoba capital on the evening of Jan. 16.
