Without having a place of reference to begin searching, Hayden is unsure if Search and Rescue has been looking for Hofmann.

“There’s no way of knowing if she’s in the vicinity or if she went somewhere, we have no idea,” Hayden said later.

Hofmann has a residence in Port Alberni that the RCMP are continuously checking.

Anyone with information on Hofmann’s movements since June 24 is asked to contact their local police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS) or www.solvecrime.ca.
