Missing tourist, Atsumi Yoshikubo, could lessen visits from Japan
Staff at the Northern Frontier Visitors Centre expect the news of a missing Japanese tourist will have an impact on future tourism from Japan.
Atsumi Yoshikubo, 45, was last seen in Yellowknife 12 days ago. A ground search began soon after she was reported missing by staff at her hotel on Monday.
RCMP have since halted that search, saying they're focussing on an area north of Yellowknife, using infrared equipment that can detect human beings, as well as police dogs. The police said no foul play is suspected.
