Search continues for missing Salt Spring woman

Salt Spring RCMP and search and rescue teams were continuing their third day of searching for island resident Sinikka Gay Elliott Friday morning.

Sgt. Clive Seabrook issued a public appeal on Thursday for help in finding Elliott, who had been missing since Wednesday, May 12. Elliott had left her home to do errands that morning and has not been seen or heard from since.

RCMP, police dog services and Salt Spring Search and Rescue (SAR) teams initiated the search Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. SAR located Elliott’s vehicle on Juniper Place but there was no sign of her nearby.

Seabrook said police and family are concerned about Elliott’s well-being.

She is described as 5’3″ tall with a slim build and dark brown short hair. She was wearing a red sweater, jeans and brown boots when she was last seen.

Elliott is an associate professor in the department of sociology at UBC.

Anyone who has information about Elliott or where she might be is asked to please call the Salt Spring RCMP detachment at 250-537-5555.
