Police in Washington State carried out an air and ground search today for a B.C. woman and her husband who were reported missing by neighbours on Tuesday.
46-year old Monique Patenaude, originally from Kimberly B.C., and 45-year Patrick Shunn haven’t been seen since Monday.
The couple live in Arlington, Washington, about 75 kilometers north of Seattle.
Shunn was last seen at his workplace but did not report for work the next day.
Patenaude was last seen around 1 p.m. near the couple’s residence.
The disappearance is considered suspicious because it is unusual for them not to be in contact with family or friends.
Late today, a tan 2000 Land Rover Discovery and a black 1995 Jeep belonging to the couple were spotted from a search helicopter in a remote wooded area near Oso, WA.
The Snohomish Sherrif’s Office says the vehicles had both gone over an an embankment in the same general area.
They added that detectives have yet to search the vehicles.
