KAMLOOPS – RCMP in Kamloops are continuing to search for clues surrounding a missing woman whose car was found abandoned in east Kamloops last week.

Thelma Vaughan’s car was found abandoned on Feb. 7 on East Shuswap Road, in the Lafarge area.

Kamloops Search and Resuce has searched the area with ground crews and drones three times, according to a news release by Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.

Police have searched nearby fields and hillsides twice with the RCMP helicopter, and the police dog service has searched along the river, police say.

“It is known that Thelma left her apartment on Saturday evening, February 3rd at 5:50 pm and appears to have driven to Shuswap Road sometime later that evening before the snow fell, as there was no snow directly under her vehicle.  It snowed on Saturday evening and Sunday,” Shelkie says.

If you saw this vehicle any time on Saturday, Feb. 3 or Sunday, Feb. 4, you're asked to call Kamloops Rural RCMP at 250-314-1800.
