Delta police are asking for the public’s help in locating 49-year-old Davina Louise McKaig.
Police say McKaig is believed to have walked away from her home in the central Tsawwassen area east of 56th Street at around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 8 and has not been seen since.
“Her disappearance is very much out of character, and her family and police are really concerned for her well-being,” DPD public affairs manager Cris Leykauf said in a press release.
McKaig is described as Caucasian woman, 5’9” tall, with an athletic build, straight brown hair and green eyes.
She is believed to have been wearing black yoga pants and carrying a blue and gray backpack with a UBC baseball logo on it at the time of her disappearance.
In an update Dec. 10, police said South Fraser Search and Rescue volunteers were called out the day before and searched well into the night. The DPD also deployed drones in an effort to locate McKaig, however she has not yet been found.
“Thank you to everyone who is sharing this post, in the efforts to help find Davina,” the department posted on Facebook Friday morning. “Regarding concerns about other missing persons files, Davina’s disappearance is not believed to be linked to any other files in Delta or Metro Vancouver.
“Police regularly receive reports of missing persons, and use a variety of techniques to try and locate those individuals. Media releases and social posts are not done in every case; that decision is made based on a number of factors including level of risk.”
Police are asking anyone who lives in the area and has CCTV, or anyone who was driving in the area around 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 8, to please check their cameras if they haven’t already been contacted by police with a request to do so.
Police are also requesting that property owners in central Tsawwassen check backyards, sheds, etc. for any signs of McKaig.
Anyone with information as to Davina McKaig’s whereabouts or who believe they may have seen her since she went missing is asked to call the Delta Police Department at 604-946-4411.
