The family of a woman from Port Moody who is still missing, Trina Hunt, has recently vowed that they will not stop looking for her and seeking answers as to what might have happened to her.

Trina Hunt allegedly went missing from her home in Port Moody, located in the Heritage Mountain area, on Jan 18th and has not been seen since. Anyone with information on her whereabouts has been urged to contact authorities.

It is reported that Hunt was allegedly last seen by her husband at her home before he left for work. When he returned that is when he allegedly found her missing and immediately contacted the police. The authorities have said it is out of character for her to have gone missing.

After she went missing a large community search had been put together and posters can be found all around the lower mainland about the story. The search that was launched was called off 3 days later.

The missing persons story has been shared all across social media as well. Many have spread the word far and wide about Trina Hunt and urging people to contact if they know any information that could help to find her.

Volunteers spent several days searching for Hunt and looked through a dense forest and park areas near where she lives, searching for any sign of her.

It has been reported that the authorities in the region immediately launched a search for Trina Hunt when she was reported missing. This involved air units, K-9 units, and search and rescue teams, along with volunteers as well.

LAST SEEN WEARING:

Trina Hunt is described as being roughly 120 pounds and 5’4, last believed to have been wearing a black North Face jacket with a teal green collar, along with purple and pink shoes.

Many people have reached out from the community and others around the world have also shown their empathy and interest for the story, hoping that some information can be uncovered to determined where Hunt is or what might have happened.

Anyone who might have information is urged to contact the Port Moody Police about Trina Hunt’s case or Crime Stoppers.

There is also an online fundraiser that has been set up to raise money for further search efforts to try and find Trina Hunt and to help fund billboards and other ads. Leftover funds will be given to the Coquitlam Search and Rescue.

Anyone with information can reportedly submit anonymous tips by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 if they might have any information about Trina Hunt that could help to find her or determine what happened. Her family and friends have now been dealing with her disappearance for weeks but they aren’t giving up hope yet and they vow to keep searching for answers.

Now some discussions have started on social media about whether or not women in the tri-cities region, from places like like Port Moody and Coquitlam, are truly safe or whether police might be doing enough. An SFU criminologist has responded in suggesting that it is a lack of information about the investigation into Trina Hunt’s disappearance that could be fueling this narrative.

Some individuals online have questioned about links with other missing women in B.C., but authorities have urged that there is no evidence to support these online rumors about women that have disappeared in the region.

The missing persons case with Trina Hunt and the response in searching for her from autorities, how they’ve handled the case and the transparency surrounding it etc, has also started a discussion about whether or not women should be arming themselves to protect themselves. Women have been posting to social media about their fears and sharing ideas about what they think they should be protecting themselves with.

Some advocates have said that authorities might be dismissing safety concerns.

As far as the rumors about B.C. women being abducted, the police have said there is no evidence to support that narrative right now and that it isn’t true.
