A Manitoba family says they are worried sick after their daughter disappeared two weeks ago in Winnipeg, and they’re hoping the public can help.
Christine Wood, 21, of Oxford House First Nation, and her parents were visiting Winnipeg while a relative went to a medical appointment. On August 19, Wood left her hotel room to go out for the night and never returned. She has not contacted family, and they say that is highly unusual for her.
With no leads, the family is now pleading with the public for someone to come forward with information.
“As people head into the long weekend, we are asking them to keep Christine at top of mind. We need the public to help us find her – any information, no matter how small, could be that piece of information that helps bring her home to her family,” said Christy Dzikowicz, Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s Director of Missing Children Services.
The Centre said Christine is “familiar with Winnipeg, having attended the University of Winnipeg this past year. Christine was last seen in the Polo Park area and is known to frequent the Osborne Village area. She is believed to be carrying a white purse. She is described as five-foot-six, average build with shoulder length dark brown hair.”
If she is not found over the weekend, the family plans to hold a press conference next week.
Anyone with information should call the Winnipeg Police Service non-emergency line at 204-986-6222.
