Sprague RCMP continue to search for a missing 70-year-old woman from Piney, Manitoba, who was last heard from in mid-October. 

It is believed that Ywanna (Jean) Backman was last in contact with a friend on Oct. 15. 

Since then, RCMP, volunteers, community members, family and friends have been assisting in the search but have yet to find any clues. 

An extensive ground search was conducted near her residence, but Jean was not located.

RCMP have now obtained a photo of Jean from Oct. 11. In the photo, she is seen wearing a green jacket, which investigators believe she may have been wearing when she disappeared.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact Sprague RCMP at 204-437-2041 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
