VERNON - North Okanagan RCMP say they haven’t given up on finding a missing Enderby woman.

An active investigation remains underway for Caitlin Potts, a 27-year-old North Okanagan woman who was last heard from on Feb. 22 and reported missing March 1. Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy says officers have been following up on numerous leads but have not been able to locate her.

“It’s a matter we’re taking very seriously,” Noseworthy says.

Potts apparently told friends she was moving to Calgary, but she has not been seen or heard from since. Friends say her lack of contact is out of character and are worried about her.

Police have used helicopters and conducted ground searches in attempts to find her, but so far have come up empty handed.

“We haven’t given up on finding Caitlin Potts by any means,” Noseworthy says.

At this point, police do not believe foul play is involved. The detachment is collaborating with Calgary police.

Potts’ mother made an emotional appeal in March asking anyone with information about her daughter to come forward.

“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,” she said.

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.
