SICAMOUS - The family of a missing Malakwa woman is once again making a desperate plea for tips.

Nicole Bell, 32, was last seen Sept. 2 in Sicamous. Three months later, her worried family is still waiting for answers.

“Christmas is coming. Who would want to spend Christmas wondering where their girl is?” Jane Aubertin says in a press release.

Bell has three young children and is described as a loving mother who enjoys the outdoors and spending time with her kids.

Her parents issued a plea this morning, Dec. 6, for any unreported information that could advance the investigation into her disappearance:

“My grandchildren deserve to know one day where their mother is. Nicole’s dad and I love her and miss her. As her mother I am asking anyone with information if you are holding out to consider the three young children that my daughter has left behind. Consider our hearts at this time of the upcoming holiday season.

Our daughter has been missing since Sept. 2, 2017 and we want to know where she is or what has happened to her.  If you can give one gift this season, we ask that it is the gift of knowledge. Where is Nicole? What happened to her?

As such, we ask that you please consider giving our family the gift of knowledge. Even if you have to report anonymously. We want to know what happened to Nicole. Her oldest child knows enough to know their mom is not coming home and her other children miss her.

We need to know what happened to our girl. Our family needs answers. To think of where she is, is something unbearable that no parent should ever have to face. Yet we are. We plead to you. Please have compassion for us. Call the tip line and let them know what you know so that we can have closure.”

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Nicole Bell is asked to contact the Sicamous RCMP at 250-836-2878 or their nearest police detachment. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 and quote file number 2017-1401.

Bell is described as Caucasian, 4'11" with blonde hair past her shoulders. She has a piercing in her nose and above her upper lip and occasionally wears glasses.
