Nanaimo RCMP are looking for 27-year-old Amy Watts, who has not had any contact with her family since February.
She was reported missing May 27 by her mother, who lives in Prince Edward Island.
It is unlike Watts to be out of contact for so long and family members are concerned for her safety.
Watts is white, five-foot-four and 120 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. She sometimes refers to herself as Amy Coady.
Police believe she might be Nanaimo and are following up on reports of possible sightings of her in the downtown area.
Call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 with any information.
