Hope remains that a missing Oxford House First Nation’s woman will be found in Winnipeg.
Police say Christine Wood didn’t return to her downtown hotel room that she was staying in with her parents on August 19th.
She had planned to just go out for the evening.
Now, officers say since a public plea to find the 21-year-old, there have been a number of possible sightings of her reported. They have come from various parts of the city.
Her mother fought through tears to deliver a simple message at a news conference, Tuesday.
“Christine, if you see me, if you can hear me …please come home,” she told reporters.
Christine’s father, George, said they’ve been living a nightmare since their daughter disappeared.
“If anybody has any information or knows whereabouts she is, or any little thing…please, help us. We need to know where she is.”
There have been candlelight vigils in Wood’s home community of Oxford House, Manitoba. She had been visiting in August for a medical appointment. Wood has been a student at the University of Winnipeg in the past and was deciding whether to enroll again this year.
If you spot Wood, you are asked to contact police.
