Family of missing North Vancouver woman pleads for information on disappearance
The family of a North Vancouver woman who went missing over three years ago is pleading for any information on her disappearance.
Angeline Pete was last seen on May 25, 2011, when she left her residence in North Vancouver.
She was not reported missing until August of that year. Her family said they delayed contacting police because they thought she could have been travelling with a carnival.
“There are days I can’t even sleep, wondering where she is and what happened to her,” said Pete’s mother Molly Dixon. “There are days I walk through the streets, hoping to bump into her. It’s been very difficult.”
Thirty-two-year-old Pete has a 10-year-old son waiting for her to come home.
In 2012, Angeline’s family and Band came forward with a $5000 reward for anyone who provides information that leads to her whereabouts.
Police say there is no evidence of foul play, and the case is still considered a missing person investigation.
There have been more than 150 tips with possible sightings of Pete, but to this day, her disappearance remains a mystery.
Cpl. Richard de Jong with North Vancouver RCMP says their investigation included conducting polygraph examinations to rule out individuals as having any information concerning her whereabouts.
“The RCMP is hoping that with the ongoing cash reward someone will come forward and provide the information needed to help solve this case,” said de Jong.
Pete is described as a 28-year-old Aboriginal woman, 5’4’, 150 pounds, with long dark hair (known to occasionally dye it) and brown eyes. Pete has as a tattoo of a butterfly on her chest.
