PENTICTON – RCMP  confirmed Monday afternoon that two people have been charged in connection with the death of a missing Penticton woman.

26-year-old Roxanne Louie was last seen on the morning of Sunday Jan. 4.  She was a member of the Osoyoos Indian band.  The mother of a three and a half year old boy was living in Vancouver but was in the Okanagan visiting.

Her cousin says she was staying at her mother-in-law’s place just before her disappearance.  Earlier reports suggested Louie told her mother-in-law that she was stepping out for the night and would meet her family at the airport for her flight back to Vancouver the next day.  Louie never showed up.
