Police seek northwestern BC minivan driver

On December 24, 2012, at approx 12:30pm, a young female was hitchhiking in the Kispiox area when she was picked up by a male driving a red minivan.

After some brief conversation, the female became very uncomfortable with the driver and requested that he stop the vehicle.

The driver, however, ignored her plea and continued driving in the opposite direction from her intended destination.

The female became fearful for her safety and when the driver slowed to cross a bridge, she jumped from the window of the vehicle. The male did not stop. He was last seen in the Hagwilget area on Highway 62, driving towards Highway 16.

The driver is described as a Caucasian male, heavy set, approximately 40 to 50 years of age. He has grey hair and was wearing dark brown glasses and a jean jacket.

RCMP continue to interview witnesses and are asking anyone with information in regards to this investigation to contact Cst. KIM or Sgt. PELLEY at the New Hazleton RCMP Detachment (250) 842-5244.

If you would like to remain anonymous please call CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
