Nanaimo RCMP are seeking public assistance in their search for missing Sarah Duguay.

The 38-year-old woman has not been seen or heard from since Thursday February 6th and she was reported missing to Nanaimo RCMP three days later, on February 9th.

Police say a friend of Duguay said she “may be associating with people who do not have [her] best interest[s] at heart” and is therefore concerned about her well being.

Duguay currently has no fixed address and recently suffered some significant medical issues.

She is described as a white woman standing 5’3″, weighing 130 lbs, and has numerous tattoos on her lower back, abdomen. She may also have dyed her hair purple and blue.

Anyone with information about Duguay is asked to contact the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
