Megan Michelle Gallagher was last seen by her friends and family on September 19, 2020. Megan is a resident of Saskatoon, with community connections to Île-à-la-Crosse and Cumberland House. She was also a former Dumont Technical Institute ABE Saskatoon student. For the past month and a half, the police, friends, and family members from all over Saskatchewan have been canvassing Saskatoon in hopes to locate Megan.

Megan’s last known location was the residence of a friend in Saskatoon’s west end. Brian Gallagher, the father of Megan, said it is unlike his daughter to be without contact with either family or friends for so long. “Megan is a daughter. Megan is a mom. Megan is a sister. Megan is a fantastic relative and an amazing friend to so many people; she is a remarkable human being. So many things just don’t make sense. We so desperately want to find Megan,” said her father, while standing alongside family members and supporters at the Wicanhpi Duta Win, or “Red Star Woman” statue outside the Saskatoon Police Service headquarters on October 14.

The Saskatoon Police Service Missing Person’s report details Megan as a 30-year-old female, 5”10 tall, approximately 180 lbs., with shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes. She has several tattoos, described as a half sleeve tattoo with a large owl from shoulder to the elbow, cross tattoo behind her ear, rainbow-colored feather on her ankle, the names “Jake” and “Adam” beneath her arm, and #13 on her hand.

The group involved with Missing Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls have contacted the family and is also looking into a billboard campaign to help locate Megan. Anyone who may have information on Megan Gallagher’s location is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service at (306) 975-8300.
