A missing persons case has come to a sad end west of Saskatoon.
RCMP had told the media early Tuesday morning that they would conduct a land and ground search for a young man who had gone missing over the weekend in the Biggar area. The focus would be a slough where searchers found the man's bicycle the day before.
Tuesday afternoon, mounties confirmed they had recovered Randy Walter's body. Walter was 24 years old, and from the Big Rose Hutterite.
Nothing turned up for search and rescue crews as they combed over an area in Regina’s northeast over the weekend.
Searchers were looking for clues to missing 27-year-old Kimberly Cruickshank’s whereabouts.
“They didn’t find anything in relation to Kim’s case. No evidence or anything like that,” said her sister Kristen.
“It’s good in some senses but then we’re still left wondering.”
A two-day ground search of northeast Regina is underway for missing 27-year-old Kim Cruickshank.
Search and Rescue members from the RCMP and the Regina Police Service gathered off Fleet Street, across from the landfill Friday morning. They were briefed as to what their plan was for the day and what equipment they’d be using. Police trucks were hauling several all-terrain vehicles.
Search and rescue crews have ramped up their efforts to find Cruickshank, after she was last seen March 23. There’s been no sign of her since.
The search is being intensified for missing 27-year-old Kimberley Cruickshank in Regina with police scanning parts of Regina from the sky and on foot this week.
"I'm glad they're doing things to try and find her, but at the same time, I'm praying they don't find anything," said Kristen Cruickshank, Kimberly's sister.
"I'm continually reminding myself to stay strong, stay positive until I'm told Kim won't be coming home, I will believe she is."
Saskatoon police are looking for a 15-year-old boy who has been missing since last Friday.

He is described as six-foot-one, 220 pounds, with short brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing grey sweat pants.
