It has been four days since a Kamloops woman, Shannon White, went missing, allegedly on her way to work Monday morning, Nov.1.

Some in her circle of friends in Kamloops said they are feeling sick with worry as time goes by and no answers have been found yet as to White’s whereabouts.

Friend and co-worker, Elyse Nelson, hopes the public have checked their dash cameras for clues.

“Her route to work usually goes through one of the two main intersections in Sahali, Notre Dame and Columbia or McGill depending if she stops to get coffee,” Nelson said. “If anyone was at those intersections right after 8 a.m. they may have seen something or got something on their cameras.”

Nelson said White is very social and active on social media and has not been online since Monday.

“She did make a Facebook story Sunday night which I saw, but those disappear after 24 hours,” she said.

Nelson said she and White bonded at the end of 2018 when they were both adapting after their long-term relations ended.

“Her personality was really starting to come out this last year and she is fiercely independent and strong,” she said. “She was really happy. She is definitely not a victim type. She is the type who would stop to help someone stranded on the side of the road, but she’s smart about it too and wouldn’t put herself in an unsafe situation.”

Nelson and her friends with put up MISSING posters of White around the city Wednesday night.

“I felt scared,” she said. “Especially downtown because at this point we just have come to the conclusion that if her Jeep was found downtown it was probably not her that put it there.”

RCMP earlier this week said it was looking for White's Jeep, but soon found it. Still, police have asked the public to report any sightings of her 1997 Jeep TJ with a B.C. license plate number KA0 22N between Monday and Tuesday around 3:30 p.m. Her Jeep has a turquoise palm print decal on the driver’s side mirror and a turquoise 'Wanderlust’ decal on the passenger side of the hood with a circular pattern between the two words.
