A Nuu-chah-nulth woman has gone missing from Victoria, leading police to ask for any information that might help locate Amanda Williams.
The 34-year-old was last seen June 24, but wasn’t reported missing until a notice was released by the Victoria Police Department on July 9. Williams is described as a slim five-foot-three with dark hair. She has two tattoos that read “God loves you” on her right forearm and right wrist.
Police report that Williams was often seen on Douglas Street in the 1,900-block area, as well as near Blanshard Street and Hillside Avenue.
“While there is no information to indicate that Amanda is in immediate danger, the circumstances under which she has gone missing are considered high-risk,” stated Victoria police.
Concern over Amanda’s whereabouts reached Yuquot, off the northwestern coast of Vancouver Island, when her grandfather Ray Williams got a call from police on July 13.
“They wanted more information about her,” said Ray.
Ray added that Amanda is also called “Tuffy”. She often wears a short ponytail and always has a backpack.
