“As the investigation has progressed unconfirmed sightings of Jessica have been reported, including in the Smithers downtown core, however, her whereabouts have not yet been established,” the release indicated.

She is described as First Nations, about 5’ 3” tall, 115 pounds, with long black hair and brown eyes.
