LPS Inspector Pete Christos says they’d like to talk to anyone who was driving along 9th Avenue South on Monday, July 5th between 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm and who may have dash cam video.

“She frequents the park very often. She likes to go for walks within the park and around the city. This is the last known location and we believe this is where she was last seen. We know she talked to somebody that afternoon before she left the house,” says Christos.

Christos was asked why the fire department is now involved in the search. He says they’re trying to eliminate the possibility she may have fallen in the lake. He notes there’s nothing right now that would indicate foul play, they’re just trying to cover all their bases in the search.

Anyone with information on this missing persons case is encouraged to contact police LPS Sgt. Saska Vanhala at saska.vanhala@lethbridgepolice.ca, or at, 403-330-5049.
