Winnipeg police have released new footage of a woman who went missing in Winnipeg more than a year and a half ago. Erik Pindera reports.

Winnipeg police are reaching out to the public for new information about a woman who has been missing since February of last year.

Cynthia Parisian, 40, was last spotted at the Home Depot on Leila Avenue on Feb. 17, 2019 and was wearing dark clothing with a pink toque at the time.

The Missing Persons Unit has been investigating her disappearance for the past 20 months, and released new video footage Friday which appears to show her getting into a dark-coloured truck after leaving the Home Depot.

Police said the truck may be an important detail in her disappearance and are looking for any information about the vehicle.

“From the time frame that Cynthia was in the Home Depot, and having left the Home Depot, the truck was in the parking lot for a significant amount of time so it would appear to us that it was perhaps waiting for her,” said Winnipeg police Det. Sgt. Andrea Scott.

Police now want to speak with the occupants of that dark-coloured truck that was seen circling the parking lot.

“Did you pick Cynthia up? Did you provide her with a ride?” Scott said.

“We believe someone has information on her disappearance. We just want some answers – anything at this point would help.”
