The husband of a Saskatoon woman found dead in 2008 says she was on her way to dinner with friends the night she was last seen alive.

Jeremiah Bosse testified how worried friends and family helped him search for weeks for Daleen Bosse.

He says they put up posters and checked parking garages for their missing car.

Bosse says they had done an oil change on the car on May 17, 2004, the day before Daleen went for dinner, and when it was found, he says it had an unusually high 400 extra kilometres on it.

Douglas Hales is charged with first-degree murder and indignity to human remains.

When Bosse was last seen, the 25-year-old mother was beginning her fourth year as a student at the University of Saskatchewan where she was studying to become a teacher like her parents.
