HAVE YOU SEEN CAITLIN POTTS?

VERNON - A Vernon mom is reaching out with the hopes that you can help her find her daughter, Caitlin Potts, who has been missing for more than a month.

Caitlin was last seen Feb. 22 and reported missing March 1. She is known to travel throughout B.C. and Alberta, but this lack of communication with friends and family is unusual, police say. RCMP describe Potts as a First Nations woman, about 5’3” and 150 lbs. with brown eyes and long black hair with blonde streaks.

Her mother, Priscilla Potts, issued the following statement today:

Hello my name is Priscilla Potts. I am the mother of Caitlin Brandy Potts.

Caitlin was reported missing to Vernon RCMP at the beginning of March after friends and family had last heard from her on February 22nd.

Caitlin is originally from Alberta but had moved to British Columbia in the fall of 2015.

Myself and the rest of Caitlin’s family have not heard from her since February and we are very worried.

Caitlin is 27 years old and leads a socially active life. Her lack of online communication with friends and loved ones is out of character for my daughter.

We believe that someone must have information about Caitlin and perhaps know where she is right now. We also need to hear from anyone who may have had contact with her or have seen her since she was last heard from on February 22nd.

I miss my daughter, not hearing from her has caused me a lot of worry and grief as any parent can understand. We simply need to hear from her so that we know she is okay.

If you can help find Caitlin or know how to get in touch with her, please call the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171 or any police force in your area. If you want to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
