Shortly after 5 p.m. on Wednesday, police were called by a concerned co-worker when Susan Jane Durham, 59, did not show up for work, said Gord Molendyk, spokesperson for the Vernon and North Okanagan RCMP.
"She had missed the two previous days as well. The last time that Susan was seen was on June 3 when she said she was going to town shopping. We know she was at several stores at the malls, however, we do not know where she went from there."
Durham left from her residence in the family vehicle, a 1999 Ford Explorer, with B.C. license plate, 510 LSM. The vehicle is white with tinted windows on the rear doors and cargo area.
"Police are concerned for Susan's well-being. Anyone who sees this vehicle is asked to call the nearest police office," said Molendyk.
