RCMP searching for missing valley woman
Columbia Valley RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in locating a missing Invermere resident.
On January 26, Columbia Valley RCMP received a missing person report for Belinda Dawn Eugene who was last seen earlier that morning in the Radium Hot Springs area. There is nothing to indicate foul play at this time, and police have reason to believe that Belinda may have been hitch-hiking, destined for the Kamloops area.
“Although it is believed that Belinda is reportedly dressed appropriately for the current weather conditions, police are very concerned for her health and well-being, should she experience a prolonged exposure,” stated Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, spokesperson for the Southeast District RCMP. “We are interested in locating Belinda to check her well-being and ask motorists travelling throughout the southern interior to watch for her.”
Description of Belinda Eugene:
5 ft 7 in (170 cm);
170 lbs (77 kg);
She was last seen wearing a black jacket, a pair of purple snow pants, a grey long fuzzy toque and a pair of eye glasses. She was last seen carrying a small black suitcase and a blue backpack.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Belinda Eugene is urged to contact their local police, or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
