Prince George RCMP are asking for assistance to find a missing woman who was last seen climbing into a pickup truck driven by an older man.
Cheri-Leah Bullshields, 29, was reported missing last night, but hasn't been seen since Thursday night. The Aboriginal woman was spotted getting into a light-coloured Chevy four-door pickup truck.
The man driving the vehicle is described as white, in his mid-50s with gray hair. He is believed to be 6-0 tall, 180 pounds, clean cut and in good shape.
Bullshields is approximately 5-9 tall, 135 pounds with long dark hair. She has scars on her wrists and a tattoo of a Chinese symbol on her lower back.
She is originally from Edmonton, Alta., but has resided in Prince George for the last year.
Eighteen women have either been murdered or disappeared in recent years along Highway 16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert in northern B.C., a route that has been dubbed the Highway of Tears.
In October, the remains of a missing Prince George woman, Cynthia Maas, were discovered in a local park. Police haven't revealed how she died but say she was murdered.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously call Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-TIPS (8477).
