The woman’s family is hopeful information can be obtained from the public about her actions before her vehicle was parked and abandoned.

It is known that she left her apartment Saturday evening, Feb. 3 at 5:50 p.m. and appears to have driven to Shuswap Road sometime later that evening before the snow fell, as there was no snow directly under her vehicle.

It snowed on Saturday evening and Sunday.

If you saw Vaughn’s vehicle any time on Saturday, Feb. 3 or Sunday, Feb. 4, contact the Kamloops Rural RCMP at 250-314-1800.
