The Highway of Tears originally referred to cases along a 700-kilometre stretch of Highway 16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert in British Columbia. An RCMP task force investigation called Project E-PANA also includes cases on Highways 5 and 97 in the B.C. Interior.
While the Project E-PANA is officially looking into 18 cases since 1969, other groups say as many as 43 women have been missing or killed along those highways.
