• Missing & Murdered: Finding Cleo with Connie Walker

    Where is Cleo? 

    It's a mystery her family has been trying to unravel for decades after the young Cree girl was apprehended by child welfare workers in Saskatchewan in the 1970s. Her siblings say she was stolen, and then raped and murdered while trying to hitchhike back home, her body left at the side of the road somewhere in the United States. 

    They have no idea where she is, whether her name was changed, or if anyone has been charged in her murder.

    ​Like many Indigenous children, Cleo's brothers and sisters were taken from their community, displayed in advertisements, and sent to live with white adoptive families across North America, through a controversial program called "Adopt Indian and Metis."

    They've reconnected as adults and are determined to find their missing sister and penetrate the secrets shrouding the truth about Cleo.

    Listen below as CBC News investigative reporter Connie Walker joins in their search, uncovering disturbing new details about how and why Cleo was taken, where she wound up, and how she died.
