Chilliwack RCMP officers were on the lookout for a South Asian male in his 40s after an incident on the Rotary Trail along the Vedder River by Peach Road last Wednesday.
At approximately 4 p.m. that day, police were dispatched to search for a small, silver vehicle after a report that a woman had supposedly been thrown into the river.
A police spokesperson was unavailable to confirm on Friday what allegedly happened at the river, but on Thursday a press release was issued into an "incident" involving a 26-year-old, slim South Asian woman wearing maroon-coloured, traditional clothing.
The male sought was described as over 40, medium build, darker skinned with short black hair wearing all black clothing. Mounties report the silver vehicle was seen driving west on the actual walking/cycling trail, where vehicles are not permitted.
"As the area was quite busy at the time with fisherman at the river, police are seeking any witnesses who may have seen these individuals or vehicle associated to the incident or anyone who has information," RCMP spokesperson Const. Cynthia Kershaw said.. Anyone one with information can contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
