Shannon White.

The investigation into the disappearance of Shannon White has led police and Kamloops Search and Rescue (KSAR) to an area west of town.

Kamloops RCMP joined together with KSAR today (Friday, Nov. 12, 2021) to search for White and any clues to her disappearance.

White is believed to have left her home in Lower Sahali around 8 a.m. on Monday morning, Nov. 1, 2021. She was supposed to be at her job on Notre Dame Drive for 8:30 a.m., but she never arrived. The next day, her vehicle was located parked on Nicola Street near Third Avenue.

As part of the investigation, police received information confirming White’s vehicle left town for a 45-minute period on Nov. 1, shortly after White was supposed to have arrived at work.  Her vehicle was seen travelling west on the Trans Canada Highway, leading officers to the area being searched.

A police presence in the Silver Sage trailer park is also related to the investigation.

“With this new information, the Kamloops RCMP are seeking any witnesses who may have observed Shannon’s Jeep west of Kamloops on Nov. 1, to please contact police,” said Corp. Dave Marshall, Kamloops RCMP Serious Crime Unit.

“We currently have a large Search and Rescue contingent searching for Shannon and we will continue to provide updates regarding the search and any additional assistance we may require from the public.”

Those with information which may be related to the investigation are asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and reference file number 2021-38386.
