Police are continuing the search for missing 61-year-old Jenny Lynn Larocque.

Larocque was reported missing on October 3 but was last seen in Williams Lake on September 27.

On Sunday October 15, the Prince George RCMP were notified that Larocque`s great Dane/brindle mastiff dog was located in the Venables Valley area, south of Ashcroft.  The dog had suffered minor injuries, but was otherwise in good health.

On Monday October 16, an RCMP Air Services helicopter and a police dog service team attended the area and began a search with the assistance of the Kamloops Search and Rescue Society.  Jenny Larocque`s vehicle, a dark blue 2014 Jeep Compass, was located later that day stuck on a rural road.  Jenny was not located.  The search continued for more days without success.

Although the search was postponed today, it will resume tomorrow.

Larocque is described as:

  • Caucasian female
  • 160 cm (5’3″)
  • 45 kg (99 lbs)
  • Green eyes
  • Brown hair

At this point, investigators have no reason to believe that Jenny Larocque has been the victim of foul play.
