VERNON - RCMP are hoping someone knows what happened to a missing Vernon woman.

Johanna Frouw, 58, was reported missing by her common-law husband Thursday evening. The pair drove to the liquor store near Safeway on 32 Street to buy beer and she chose to wait in the car. When Frouw's common-law husband returned, Frouw wasn't there, though the car was where he left it, keys were in the ingition and her cell phone was left behind. 

Mounties were told Frouw has used crack cocaine on occasion, though she hasn't lately and it isn't common for her to take off. They were told there was no indication anything was wrong at the time of the disappearance. 

Vernon RCMP launched a search but were unable to find any leads. They're turning to the public for help.

Anyone with infomation can contact RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
