Potential witness sought in case of woman reported missing in Surrey

VPD are looking for a man they believe may have information about Tatyanna Harrison’s disappearance

Vancouver Police say they are now looking to speak with a man who may have information regarding the disappearance of a woman who was reported missing in Surrey a month ago.

A pair of images of the potential witness were released Thursday (June 2).

“Investigators believe this man is a possible witness and not a suspect,” Const. Tania Visintin said in a news release.

“They believe he was last seen with Tatyanna on March 23. We need him, or anyone who knows him, to call police.”

The man is described as 30- to 40-years-old, with a slim build, a moustache and stubble on his face. He was last seen wearing a two-toned dark grey or dark blue and white jacket, a dark hooded sweater and a dark-coloured toque.

Harrison was reported missing on May 3, after going for more than a month without contacting her family – behaviour described as “unusual” for the 20-year-old.

She was last known to be in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside area.

Surrey RCMP issued a public appeal last month asking for assistance in locating Harrison. She is described as a five-foot-one Indigenous woman, with brown eyes and a slim build. When last seen, she had medium length auburn hair – police note the style and colour may be different now – and she usually wears prescription glasses and loose-fitting clothing.

On Monday (May 30), Vancouver Police renewed Surrey’s appeal.
