On Thursday November 20th, a member of the Prince George RCMP’s General Duty Section located a vehicle associated to Anita at the Willow River rest area next to Highway 16, approximately 35 kilometres east of the City. A Police Service Dog and handler were called in and conducted a search of the area by ground while an RCMP plane conducted a search of the area by air. Both searches were negative.
