Foul play may have played a role in the disappearance of a local woman, Prince George RCMP said Friday.
Following up on an alert issued earlier this week, police said Roberta Marie Sims, 55, remains missing and the detachment's serious crime unit has been called in to lead the investigation.
"Police believe that Roberta's disappearance is very suspicious and out of character," RCMP said. "Investigators are concerned that she may have met with foul play."
She is described as 163 cm (5'4") tall and weighing 70 kg (154 lbs) with long strawberry-blonde hair, blue eyes and several tattoos, including a robin on the right side of her neck as well as tattoos on her left upper arm and left upper chest.
She also goes by the first name of Robin, may also go by the first name of Bobby and the last names of Chambers and Jacobson.
Sims has not been seen since May 1, although her dog and vehicle have been located. Anyone who may have seen the vehicle - a dark red 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer with B.C. licence plate BH248X since that date is asked to contact Sgt. Todd Wilson or Cst. Jessica Gillam at the Prince George RCMP, 250-561-3300.
