Search continues for Victoria Aguilar

Family, friends and RCMP vow to continue search until 'all avenues of investigation have been exhausted'

The search for Slocan resident Victoria Aguilar will continue until “all avenues of investigation have been exhausted”.

Aguilar, 63, was initially reported missing last Wednesday. She was last seen walking near her Slocan home on Harold Street, a short distance from her home.

“Members of the Slocan Lake and Nakusp RCMP detachments have been searching for Victoria Aguilar since receiving the report of her being missing on January 7,” reads an RCMP press release.

“The RCMP along with search and rescue, police dog services and the New Denver Fire and Rescue boat, conducted searches of abandoned roads, trails, beach fronts, river shores, water areas, cabins and open fields around Slocan. These searches continued for three days and have been unsuccessful in locating Victoria.”

RCMP have used social media during the investigation, contacting family members in an attempt to garner information.

“A request has also been made for the RCMP helicopter to conduct air searches of the area. However, the weather has preventing this from commencing thus far.”

Further searches are planned, and will likely be based on the timing of the snow melt or whether authorities receive any new information.

“The investigation continues and will remain open.”

Aguilar is 5’4″, medium build, with a shaved head, fair complexion, and freckles. She was last seen wearing a long brown winter coat, a toque, and winter boots.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Victoria Aguilar is asked to contact the Nelson RCMP at 250-352-2156.
