Halifax police say they are receiving tips from the public as they continue to investigate what they are calling the suspicious disappearance of a Dartmouth woman.

She was reported missing on March 3, and investigators had said they are treating her disappearance as "suspicious". They charged him Wednesday afternoon with assaulting MacKenzie, interfering with human remains and two counts of breach of probation.

They say no charges have been laid.

"The investigation and the evidence has led the investigators to believe that Karen is deceased, but we haven't located her", Const. Carol McIsaac said. "She hasn't been found".

He's scheduled to appear in Dartmouth provincial court Thursday morning.

Police are still asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to call Halifax Regional Police at 902-490-5020.

"MacKenzie is described as white, 5-5" tall, with brown hair and blue eyes.

She wouldn't say whether investigators tracked her movements beyond when she was last seen in February.

After going public with the case, a police forensic team spent several days at the apartment complex she was last seen at.
