Investigators are treating this as a fail-to-remain and are urging anyone with information to contact the major collision bureau.

“The time of day, especially given that it was after midnight, really has limited the number of motorists that have come forward so we believe there may be additional motorists in the area that may not have yet had the opportunity to speak with our investigators,” said const. Akhil Mooken.

Police have not released a vehicle description.
