Missing person - family statement
The Calgary Police Service continues to investigate the disappearance of a woman who was displaced as a result of flooding in Calgary.
In the hopes of encouraging more information from the public, the family is releasing a statement to the media as well as a new photograph.
Stacie Dawn GORAN, 42, was last seen by a friend on Monday, June 24, 2013, in the area of McKnight Boulevard and Edmonton Trail N.E. She has not been seen or heard from since.
GORAN is described as being Caucasian, 5'4" tall, with a very slim build and has blond hair and brown eyes. She was wearing pierced earrings, a green and white pullover, an orange or pink T-shirt, blue jeans, green and white shoes and a blue baseball cap, at the time of her disappearance.
The following is a statement that can be attributed to her family.
“Stacie was an outgoing person who would give the shirt off her back to help anyone.
She was a wonderful mother who cared very much for her four children. She went to all their school functions and made Halloween costumes by hand as well as birthday cakes from scratch.
Growing up Stacie was involved in sports of all kinds as well as dancing (Ukrainian dancing) and also was an honour roll student.
Her love of people led her to the career of waitressing, which she did extremely well. This unfortunately led her to an alcohol addiction. From there, the side effects of alcohol caused other problems with anxiety, migraines and depression, for which she sought medical help, thus also developing an addiction to prescription medications.
She has been relying on shelters and food banks for the last few months to provide her everyday needs. She was in contact with her children and with her mother on June 23rd and was to contact them the following day and did not. We have not heard from her since, nor have her children.
A friend had called her mother and said he could not find her as they were separated during the flood and was going to call the police in a couple of days if he did not hear from her.
Her family and friends are extremely concerned of her whereabouts and safety and want her found.”
Anyone with information about GORAN’s whereabouts is asked to call police at 403-266-1234 or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods:
