The family of missing Port Moody woman Trina Hunt spoke out Monday, saying they will not stop looking until they find her.

In a statement read by Hunt’s cousin-in-law, Stephanie Ibbott, the family said the grief and emotional turmoil they have been going through these past six weeks has been “beyond explanation.”

“When we think about tragedies in our lifetime, it is unimaginable that something like this could actually occur. Your daughter, your wife, your sister, your cousin going missing,” Ibbott said.

He said the past six weeks have been “devastating and an incredibly difficult time.”
