New Westminster police have released surveillance footage of Nirla Sharma that was recorded the morning she went missing from her Queensborough area home.
Sharma, a 44-year-old mother of two, was last seen Sunday at around 9 p.m. at her home in the 300-block of Lawrence Street in New West.
Sharma’s family told police they heard the front door chime at around 4 a.m. on Monday but Sharma, who typically arrives at her job at B.C. Hydro in Vancouver at around 6:30 a.m., didn’t make it into work and hasn’t been heard from since.
After scouring a “significant amount of CCTV footage,” NWPD have found and released a short video clip that shows Sharma walking alone in the Queensborough Landing business area at 3:27 a.m.
Police are now asking for dashcam footage from anyone who drove over the Queensborough Bridge on Feb. 24, between 3:30 and 5 a.m.
“As the days go by, we become more and more concerned for her well-being,” said NWPD Sgt. Jeff Scott.
Police described her as a South Asian woman, 5-foot-4 with a slim build, weighing about 138 pounds. She has a medium complexion, short black hair and brown eyes. She has a tattoo on her left arm of an OM symbol and tattoos of a crown on her right wrist, a rose on her tailbone and a design on her left ankle.
Anyone with information about Sharma’s whereabouts can contact the NWPD tip line at 604-529-2430.
