RCMP are looking for a Regina woman who may have been abducted and the person who may be responsible.
Late Saturday night, 30-year-old Stephanie Bruch allegedly sent a concerning message to a friend who reported it to Regina Police. That information was forwarded to the Saskatchewan RCMP Dispatch Centre.
An investigation identified a suspect, 29-year-old Kelly Baht, and a suspect vehicle. Searches of the area where both were believed to be located were started by Melville, Wynyard, Fort Qu’Appelle and Punnichy RCMP with assistance from the Saskatoon Police Service Air Service unit.
The suspect vehicle was found south of Ituna on Highway 10 abandoned in a field with neither Baht or the woman being located.
About 20 minutes before the vehicle was found, Melville RCMP got a report of a man approaching a woman outside her home in Melville. The man, believed to be Baht, was searching through the woman’s vehicle. When asked by the woman what the man was doing and after a short conversation, the man got into what RCMP say was an “older white/light grey” small truck and left. The truck had a small quad or ATV in the box.
Baht is described as six feet tall weighing 158 pounds. He has a medium build, light brown hair and blue eyes.
The public is asked to not approach Baht and call 911 if he is seen. Anyone with information as to where Baht or Bruch may be are being told to call Crime Stoppers, 911 or the nearest police detachment.
