Laura Huebner

More information has come to light in the search for a woman travelling from Regina to Vancouver Island last month.

Nanaimo RCMP have now joined the search for Laura Huebner, who was first reported missing to Sidney RCMP by family on April 29th.

Huebner was last seen at the Victoria International airport on Sunday April 24th, after arriving on a flight from Saskatchewan.

It is believed she travelled to Nanaimo the same day. There have been no other confirmed sightings of her since.

Huebner was supposed to return to Regina on Thursday April 28th at midnight, but it has been confirmed she never boarded her flight in Victoria.

Family and friends have posted updates online stating Huebner sent her father a random photo of a boat she may have been on. There is also speculation she was meeting a man that she had recently met online.

Once the photos of the boat were posted online, people began to speculate the location, many stating the area appeared to be in Nanaimo.

The following day, a boat matching the description and photo was seen docked at a Nanaimo marina next to an RCMP vessel after it was towed in.

Victoria Buzz reached out to Nanaimo RCMP to confirm whether a boat is connected to this missing person case, in response, Const. Gary O’Brien said they would not be confirming any details other than she is believed to be in the Nanaimo area, as of April 24th.

As a result, her family is concerned for her safety and well-being.

Huebner is described as a Caucasian woman standing 5’8” tall, weighing about 140 pounds. She has blonde hair and brown eyes.

Huebner was last wearing blue jeans, and white jacket over a white hoodie. It was originally reported by Sidney RCMP that she is 47-years-old, however, Nanaimo RCMP are reporting her as 45-years-old.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Laura Huebner is urged to contact Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
