Nanaimo RCMP are seeking public assistance to locate missing 19-year-old woman, Kelsie Boutilier.
There have been unconfirmed reports of Boutilier being spotted at the Nanaimo Tent City, but police have not been able to locate her.
Her family has not seen or heard from her since July 7th, and they’re particularly concerned because she needs daily medication which she has not taken for 2 weeks.
Boutilier is a Caucasian woman, standing 5’6″ tall, weighing 105 lbs, and has brown hair and green eyes. She also has ear stretching hoops and a piercing near her right eye. Kelsie was last seen wearing shorts and a black hoodie.
Her support network believes she is “hiding from her family because she is under the impression that the Nanaimo RCMP will arrest,” says Cst. Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.
“This is simply not true. We want to assure Kelsie and her friends that she is not in trouble and that she will not be arrested. We just want to touch base with her family to let them know she is safe.”
If you have information on where she may be, please call Nanaimo RCMP’s non-emergency line at 250-754-2345. To report what you know anonymously, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
