Foul play now suspected in Delores Brown disappearance

The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit says foul play is now suspected in the disappearance of an 19 year old Penelakut Island woman.

Delores Brown was last seen July 27th.

Corporal Darren Lagan of the Island District RCMP says they can’t reveal publicly what led them to that conclusion.

“We have a very active investigation still underway, with out Major Crime Unit… based on their knowledge and their experience and what they’re physically seeing in front of them in terms of the evidence and information they have in front of them they are suspecting foul play,” he says.

Lagan says ground searches and police work haven’t turned up many clues, and it’s possible Brown is somewhere out side the mid-Island region.

He says tips from the public are going to be vital in solving the case, and police hoping to hear from anyone who may have information.
