Hope teen is missing

Jessica Janis Webber was last seen on July 8 at her home

The RCMP is looking for assistance in locating a missing 16-year-old teenager from Hope.

Jessica Janis Webber was last seen at her home on July 8 at 5 a.m. and is believed to have travelled to Alberta by hitching rides with long-haul truck drivers.

Police have confirmed that Webber attended a friends home in Wetaskiwin, Alberta on July 9. She has family and friends in Hay River and Lethbridge, however there is no indication at this time that she has been to either city. Police said Webber contacted a friend in Campbell River, B.C. on July 17 and advised the friend she was in Alberta. However, Webber’s family has not heard from her since she went missing.

“Jessica lives a high risk lifestyle and has gone missing on several occasions before,” says Corp. Tammy Hollingsworth. “The concern we have now is when she has gone missing in the past she usually maintains contact and checks in with her regular friends and family, however she hasn’t this time.”

Webber is described as 5’4″, 96 pounds, with brown shoulder length hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Webber is asked to call Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
