Kate Dene says Shelly was supposed to housesit for her. But when the elder returned, there was no sign of Shelly.

The grandmother says it's unlike Shelly not to contact family and friends for this length of time.

"I used to wonder how those people feel losing somebody, not knowing where this person is. I used to think that. Now I understand how they feel. You get into real bad depression but I keep myself out of that. I just pray and ask God to help me and to help Shelly, wherever she is."

Shelly Dene is 5 feet, seven inches tall, and weighs 165 pounds. When she was last seen she had shoulder length dark brown hair.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Edmonton Police Service at 780-423-4567. Anonymous information can be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
