It’s been two months since a Grand Bay-Westfield woman went missing. Video obtained by the RCMP shows Andrea Limkilde was last seen along River Valley Drive between 2 and 3:30 on the afternoon of February 05th.
Today – about 225 people turned out to search an area of the community in hopes of finding a finding a clue that would provide a break in the case – and – show support for a local family.
One of the organizers – Brittany Merrifield – tells newsysj.ca the volunteers searched the Shannon Road / Blueberry Hill area of the community over a three hour period. A previous search of the area by Ground Search and Rescue Teams was done shortly after Limkilde was reported missing – but – the area was snow covered at the time. Merrifield says any items of potential interest were reported to the RCMP for follow up.
In a Facebook post – the family thanked the volunteers and businesses who provided support for today’s search. They also thanked the RCMP “for their continued search for Andrea. They have gone above and beyond to try to find her.” And ended the post with “Please continue to pray for Andrea’s safe return.”
