Police in Surrey, Chilliwack seeking help with two missing-women cases
BY STAFF REPORTER, THE PROVINCEMARCH 9, 2010
'DISTRAUGHT' CALL FROM CHILLIWACK
Meanwhile, police in the Chilliwack area are trying to track down 23-year-old Erica Dawson, a young woman with a "transient lifestyle" whose last communication with family was a distraught early-morning phone call on Feb. 17.
Dawson called family in Halifax from a payphone at a Greyhound bus station in Chilliwack around 2 a.m. that day, says RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop.
"Although she is known to live a transient lifestyle, [Dawson's family] are concerned for her well being and have contacted the police for help," said Dunlop.
Dawson is white, five-foot-four with a thin build, with long dark-brown hair. She has tattoos on her knuckles spelling the name "CRAIG" and a visible scar on her chest from a surgery.
"It is not known if Chilliwack was Dawson's destination or if she may still be travelling and now out of the Chilliwack area," said Dunlop.
"While Dawson has gone without contact with her family in the past, she lives an at-risk lifestyle and sounded distraught the last time she spoke to family," she said.
Anyone with information on Dawson's whereabouts is asked to call Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611, local police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.http://www.theprovince.com/news/Police+Surrey+Chilliwack+seeking+help+with+missing+women+cases/2662079/story.html
