UPDATE: Sabrina has been located and is safe.

EARLIER: Saanich Police are seeking public assistance to locate missing 41-year-old woman, Sabrina, and her dog Bruno.

The two went for a walk at around 6 p.m. on Sunday evening in the Knockan Hill area of Saanich and have not returned. Sabrina is currently non-verbal, has special needs, and functions at the level of a 10-year-old.

She is a 41-year-old Caucasian woman, standing 5’5″ tall with medium build and short brown hair. Sabrina was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt with a logo, dark shorts, and purple shoes.

Her dog, Bruno, is medium sized and has short, golden hair. He wears a red collar, no tags
and has a black leash. Bruno would likely respond to his name being called even though
Sabrina may not, according to a release by Saanich Police.

Police say Sabrina is most likely lost, as she likes going for long walks, but has just moved to the area and does not know her way around well.

Anyone who sees Sabrina and/or Bruno is asked to contact Saanich Police at 250-475-4321.
