Police are seeking the public’s help in locating a missing 32-year-old woman who was last seen Monday, July 6, 2020.

Samantha Johnston was last seen in Lumby and since her disappearance, Vernon North Okanagan RCMP officers have followed up on several leads and possible sightings of the 5-foot-7 Caucasian woman no to avail.

She is described as a 119-pound woman with a slim build, dyed red and blond hair and hazel eyes with glasses.

Police are worried for Johnston’s health and well-being. Friends and family report it is out of character for Johnston to be out of contact for this long.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the local police detachment or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leaving a tip online at nokscrimestoppers.com.
