Police in Prince Rupert are requesting the public's help in locating a missing woman.

A news release says friends of Jennifer Sharon Innes contacted the RCMP on February 6th (Sunday) asking for them to perform a check on her well-being after she displayed out of character behaviour.

Police say they have not been able to make contact with Innes after repeated attempts to locate and confirm her well-being. They are asking anyone with information to reach out.

Innes is described as a 40-year old Indigenous female who is 5'4 (163 cm) in height and 135lbs (61 kg) in weight. She has brown eyes and bright red dyed frosted tips.

Innes was last seen wearing purple leggings, a black hoodie and a small black backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP or CrimeStoppers.
