RCMP launched an investigation the following day after Petrovic was reported missing.

Police describe Petrovic as “Caucasian, 5’7” / 170 cm, 257 lbs / 117 kg, heavy build, shoulder length ‘salt and pepper’ brown hair and blue eyes.”

A clothing description is not available at this time, say police, but Petrovic may have been wearing a blue jacket and running shoes.

She may also be wearing an over-the-shoulder “satchel style purse,” according to a news release issued by police Tuesday afternoon.

It’s the second time since Monday that Yellowknife RCMP have turned to the public for help in locating Petrovic.

Police say Petrovic lives downtown and is known to frequent the area.

“It is unusual circumstances for a person to not have activity or contact with known associates or locations where they usually frequent,” stated Sgt. Yannick Hamel in Tuesday’s news release.

“We are hoping to locate Ms. Petrovic as soon as possible and ensure she is safe and well.”
Residents are asked to keep an eye out for Petrovic.

The investigation continues and police are seeking any information or leads from the public.

Anyone with information related to the whereabouts of Sladjana Petrovic is asked to contact either Yellowknife RCMP at 867-669-1111 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, nwtnutips.com, (click on “submit a web tip”) or text: nwtnutips to 274637.

Updates to follow.
