Police in Nanaimo are asking for the public's help to locate 16-year-old Katrina Noelle Ladouceur, who has been missing since May 28.

Ladouceur left her home and is believed to be in the company of a 27-year-old man she travelled with in mid May. She was found in Port Alberni with the male and returned to her home.

Ladouceur did not take her medication with her, which she needs to control a medical condition.

There have been several unconfirmed sightings of Ladouceur in the past week, but so far her whereabouts remain unknown.

Ladouceur is Caucasian, 5-foot-7, 140 pounds with shoulder-length, reddish-brown hair. She has no visible scars or tattoos. One interesting physical feature is her gait. She walks on the balls of her feet, which is sometimes referred to as a "dancers' walk."

Ladouceur was last seen wearing an orange or pink Billabong hoody with white sleeves, blue jeans, light blue-grey hiking boots and a Navy blue tuque.

The first name of the male she might be with is Kody. He is Caucasian, 5-foot-11, 130 pounds and might be carrying a black packsack and black guitar case.

Anyone who knows Ladouceur's whereabouts, please contact Const. Sheri Wade at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
