As the investigation into the disappearance of a 40-year-old woman from Maple Ridge continues on, investigators have released another surveillance image found of her.
Ridge Meadows RCMP had previously stated that Atefeh Jadidian was last seen around 4 p.m. on February 19 when she was leaving her workplace in the 22800 block area of Lougheed Highway in Maple Ridge.
On February 24, Ridge Meadows RCMP had released a surveillance photo of her walking through a parking lot in the 24000 block area of Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge on February 19. Her vehicle, a white Mazda CX-5 Sport Utility Vehicle, was found in the same area on February 22.
After an appeal to the public for assistance in locating her, several business owners and citizens provided more security camera footage.
Today (February 28), investigators released another image which shows Jadidian walking east in the 24800 block area of Dewdney Trunk Road around 5:30 p.m. on February 19.
Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue searched the area surrounding Cliff Park between 252nd Street and 256th Street in Kanaka Regional Park but did not locate Jadidian.
She is described as a woman of Middle Eastern descent who is 165 centimetres (five-feet, five-inches) tall and weighs 62 kilograms (137 pounds). She has shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes.
Investigators are seeking to speak with anyone who:
- may have dashcam footage while driving on Dewdney Trunk Road between 248th Street and 270th Street on February 19th between 5:25 and 6:15 p.m.;
- lives between 248th Street and 270th Street anywhere along Dewdney Trunk Road, including side streets;
- has doorbell cameras or home video surveillance in the area.
Anyone who has seen or has any information about her whereabouts is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Meanwhile, other separate investigations are underway in attempts to locate other women from the Lower Mainland who have recently gone missing, including 44-year-old Nirla Sharma from New Westminster, 54-year-old Moneca Remillard from New Westminster, and 61-year-old Monica Winter from the University Endowment Lands.
