‘Silence is killing us’: Saskatoon community hosts march for Megan Gallagher and Missing Persons Week

SASKATOON – More than 100 people were in attendance at Joe Gallagher Field to take part in a march to raise awareness of the disappearance of Megan Gallagher, 30.

This week marks the first anniversary of Gallagher’s disappearance. The march also recognizes Missing Persons Week.

Before the march there was music as well as speeches from several people including Saskatoon Mayor Charlie Clark and Megan’s father Brian Gallagher.

“We were meeting here this morning for what was called ‘Megan’s walk’. Our goal for Megan’s walk is to raise awareness of missing persons, ”said Brian.

Brian said he was thrilled with the turnout, with people filling the baseball field wearing shirts and holding signs with his daughter’s face on it.

“To see so many people supporting us, I don’t even know how to describe it, there are no words to describe it,” Brian told CTV. ” It will be a good day. It’s going to be very hard, but it’s going to be a good day.

Brian hopes that in addition to raising awareness, the walk can help encourage some people with information to come forward.

“One of the themes of today’s walk is ‘silence is killing us’ because people know, they have information. They have to move forward, ”he said.

In the months following Megan’s disappearance, her family put up a notice board in Saskatoon hoping someone would provide her with information.

According to the family, Megan has not been in contact with her family since September 16, 2020 and was last seen leaving a residence on Lloyd Crescent around 2:30 p.m. on September 18, 2020. In January, police said he was treating Megan’s search as a homicide.

In May, Saskatoon Police released a recording of a phone call made from Megan’s cell phone the night she went missing.

The group marched to the River Landing Amphitheater with a police escort.
