Missing Errington woman's truck found in ditch on logging road

Search are continuing to look for 45-year-old Sara Sherry, who was reported missing on Feb. 17.

A pickup truck believed to have been driven by a missing Errington woman was found Friday on a logging road.

Searchers have not located Sara Sherry. The 45-year-old was reporting missing on Feb. 17 by family who last had contact with her on Feb. 15.

Oceanside RCMP said the grey pickup — a 2017 Nissan Frontier with the B.C. licence plate ML 6181 — was found in a ditch about 15 metres from a logging road.

The truck was about 20 kilometres south of Highway 19 and Northwest Bay Logging Road, where it was last seen about 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 15.

Sgt. Shane Worth of Oceanside RCMP said Arrowsmith Search and Rescue and its partner agencies have been actively searching for Sherry since Friday afternoon, continuing well into the dark.

“The area where the truck was located is a popular weekend destination for backcountry enthusiasts and search crews are actively searching the area through day and night,” Worth said in a statement. “We are asking for those out there this weekend to be on the lookout for Sara.”

Expect civilian air search-and-rescue and Arrowsmith Search and Rescue to be in the area this weekend, police said.

Sherry is described as white, five-foot-three and 120 pounds with blond hair and green eyes.

Police ask anyone with information on her whereabouts to contact Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111.
