The family of Karina Bethann Wolfe led a candlelight vigil and march on Wednesday night to mark the fourth anniversary of the young woman's disappearance.

The vigil started at 810 Appleby Drive and ended at a phone booth off 20th Street, across from the White Buffalo Youth Lodge, the last place Karina was seen.

Josephine Longneck, Wolfe's grandmother, said it was an emotional evening.

"I'm very, very thankful that there is people out there that are showing their support," Longneck said. "It's been really hard. It's been really frustrating to not know where Karina is."

Longneck said she hopes the anniversary of Wolfe's disappearance will influence the public to take notice of missing person cases.

"It's very, very important to me to raise this awareness because it isn't just Karina that went missing, but this is a daily thing where aboriginal people are missing," she said. "It's not just women that are missing, it's aboriginal men also."

Karina's mother, Carol Wolfe, led the vigil for the fourth time in hopes of finding answers.

"I'm going to keep going," Carol Wolfe said. "I am never going to give up. I am not going to give up. I am going to keep fighting and keep looking. Keep having these walks. I am not going to just sit back and wait. I am going to do stuff. We need to find her. I mean, she is my daughter. I gotta find her."

‚Äč  Karina would be 24-years-old now. She was last seen by her family four years ago today.

"The last time I saw her was on Appleby, where I lived, when she got into a car with some man...I asked Karina if she was coming home that evening, and I told her that I loved her," Carol said. 

She was a passenger in a 2001 grey Corvette. Police were able to determine she was later dropped off in the area of 20th Street and Avenue H.

A high risk lifestyle

Police consider her disappearance suspicious because she lived what they describe as a high risk lifestyle.

Furthermore, since disappearing she has not contacted any family or friends, there is no record of banking activity and she hasn't picked up any prescription medicine.

Carol Wolfe said her birthday is coming up in July, and that Karina never missed making contact with her on her birthday.

"The first time she missed my birthday, I knew something was wrong," Wolfe said.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Saskatoon police or Crime Stoppers.
