Codiac Regional RCMP are seeking the public's help in locating two women who have gone missing from Moncton over the past few days.
Patricia Wares, 34, was last seen on Aug. 22 shortly after 1 p.m. in the Bromley Avenue area, between Mountain Road and Connaught Avenue.
Jessica Margarite Landry, 28, was reported missing the same day, but has not been seen since the afternoon of Aug. 20 at the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites on Main Street, said Cpl. David Swansburg.
No foul play suspected
Police do not suspect foul play in either case and do not believe the cases are connected, said Swansburg.
"It's just whenever we get these reports, we have to do our due diligence to locate them and make sure that they're fine," he said.
"The Jami Springer file, which has been going on now for [nearly a year], this is exactly how it started, she went missing. So we take … them very seriously."
Swansburg did say police are concerned about Wares's well-being.
Investigators believe Landry may be in the Saint-Paul area.
Wares is described as being about five feet five inches tall and approximately 120 pounds, with long straight blond hair and blue eyes.
Landry is also about five feet five inches tall and approximately 120 pounds. She has brown hair, brown eyes and a distinctive mole on her upper right cheek.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of either woman is asked ot contact the Codiac Regional RCMP at 506-857-2400.
Springer, 28, was last seen walking on McLaughlin Drive on the afternoon of Aug. 31, 2016. New Brunswick RCMP's major crime unit continues to investigate her disappearance as "suspicious."
A $12,000-award is being offered to anyone with information that leads to Springer being located. Her friends and family raised $10,000 and Crime Stoppers contributed $2,000.
"We continue to believe someone knows what happened to Jami," Const. Hans Ouellette has said. "We strongly urge anyone with information to come forward to help find her."
