Lariviere is described as an Indigenous female who is 5’5” tall and weighs approximately 145 lbs. She has medium length ash brown hair and a nose piercing in her right nostril.

Lariviere was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black turtleneck sweater, a blue Champion windbreaker and black Nike shoes. She was also carrying a black backpack.

“Lariviere’s disappearance is considered to be out of character and because she is a youth, there are concerns for her well-being,” said police in the release.

“Lariviere is also familiar with the Edmonton transit system and is known to frequent northwest, west, and northeast Edmonton.”

The second teen, 15 year-old Willow Winiewski, was reported missing by her family after she did not return home from an outing.
