Prince George couple Cameron and Charity West have officially been welcomed home from a five-month-walk across the country, and an additional 17-day-walk across the Highway of Tears, to raise awareness for missing and murdered Indigenous people.

They were also joined on the Highway of Tears leg of their journey by supporters Gary West and Wendy Brown.
