UPDATE: According to an RCMP update on June 17th, Lia Barker has been found safe and sound.
Earlier: West Shore RCMP are seeking public assistance in their search for 13-year-old Lia Barker who has gone missing for the second time this month.
She was first reported missing to Victoria Police on June 2nd, but was found safe and sound three days later on June 5th.
This time, West Shore RCMP say she was reported missing on Tuesday, June 11th and was last seen in View Royal.
Cst. Nancy Saggar told Victoria Buzz that Barker has not been in contact with her caregiver since then, which is out of character for her.
She is described as a Caucasian girl, standing 5’8″ tall, weighing 135 lbs, and has dyed red hair. Barker was last seen wearing a pink or purple top and black pants.
Barker also went missing back in October 2018 but was later located by West Shore RCMP.
