Police are asking any drivers who were in the Nicola Avenue area in Merritt last Monday to review any dash cam footage they may have captured, as police continue to investigate the disappearance of Lalie Honeywell.

The 44-year-old was reported missing the morning of May 12 – she was last seen on May 11 at the Double D Inn in the 1500-block of Nicola Avenue in Merritt around 6 p.m. Police have since conducted a search of the Nicola River together with the Nicola Valley Search and Rescue, after items believed to belong to Honeywell were found in the vicinity of the Nicola River Bridge.

“The search of the high waters of the Nicola River has now been completed, with negative results,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey with the RCMP Southeast District stated. “Although search and rescue personnel are no longer scouring the area, the RCMP continues its search for Lalie and its investigation into her disappearance.”

“At this time, investigators are urging motorists who travelled in the area of the Nicola River Bridge, along Nicola Avenue, any time after 5 p.m. on Monday, May 11 to review their footage for any signs of Ms. Honeywell,” he added.

Police describe Honeywell as an Indigenous woman with short brown hair and brown eyes, 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing around 150 pounds. Police say she was last seen wearing jeans, a purple shirt and shoes of the DC brand.

Anyone with information about Honeywell’s whereabouts is asked to call the Merritt RCMP at 250-378-4262, or a local police detachment.
