The family of a woman who has been missing since her plane vanished in late November believes they have a photo that could hold a clue to her location.

Pilot Dominic Neron, 28, and his girlfriend Ashley Bourgeault, 31, have been missing since their plane disappeared near Revelstoke.

Bourgeault’s family has renewed hope that the aircraft might be found after they discovered a drone photo that appears to show the word “help” or “here” spelled out, Bourgeault’s cousin Carol Barnes said.

It also looks like there might be a propeller, although it’s hard to see in the shadows, she added.

The two families are feeling hopeful, Barnes said. Bourgeault is a mother of three.

“They do need closure one way or the other, so that’s pretty well what everybody’s looking for right now, just closure. There’s three little kids who need closure. There’s her mom and dad and Dominic’s family,” Barnes said.
