The Creston RCMP is seeking public assistance in locating a 23-year-old Creston woman who has not been seen since June 18, 2011.

Alana Chipesia was last seen on June 18, 2011 at her personal residence on the Lower Kootenay Band Reserve. That day, Alana Chipesia  was involved in a minor police complaint, which required the attendance of the Creston RCMP to her residence. Alana Chipesia left the home in a white 1997 Pontiac Sunfire, BC Licence Plate 083-THK, prior to police arrival.

Since then, her family has not had any contact from her.  At this point, her family is concerned about her personal safety and well being.

Alana Chipesia is 23 years old, has shoulder-length black hair and is 165 cm tall, weighing about 119 pounds.

Anyone with any information about the location of Ms. Chipesia is asked to contact their local police office or the Creston RCMP at 250-428-9313.
