Winnipeg: An RCMP task force has released an audio tape of cell phone conversation in missing Alberta woman Amber Tuccaro case.
The recording is of a cellphone conversation that Amber Tuccaro received while she was in a vehicle south of Edmonton in August 2010 — the last time she was seen.The RCMP’s Project KARE has released a voice recording investigators hope will help them learn what happened to Amber Tuccaro, a young Alberta mother who had been missing since August 2010. In the recording, Tuccaro can repeatedly be heard asking where they are going, and saying that she wants to go into the city. “You better not be taking me anywhere I don’t want to go,” she says, on the tape. “I wanna go to the city.” Police warn the content is disturbing. The man assures Tuccaro that the vehicle is headed to Edmonton, but Tuccaro appears increasingly skeptical as the conversation continues.
“You’d better not be taking me anywhere I don’t want to go,” Tuccaro can be heard telling the man. “I want to go into the city.”
“We are, we’re going,” the man responds.
“We’re not going into the city,” Tuccaro says again.
The man continues to assure Tuccaro that the roads they are taking are headed to the east side of Edmonton. The recording becomes garbled as the call fades, but the man can be heard saying “gravel” right before the call cuts out.
Tuccaro, who was 20 at the time and was the mother of a 14-month old, hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
