A Kelowna woman has gone missing.

Friends and family of Cassy Miller have put up posters around the city hoping that someone will have information about her whereabouts. Miller has been missing since Nov. 6.

Her friend, Ashleigh Blanke describes Miller as a caring mother

“She is so cared for. She is not another person passing through the wind. So many people love her. This is completely out of character,” said Blanke.

Blanke said Miller has been known to disappear for two days at a time in the past and those disappearances were were drug related. But she said Miller has sought help through programs regularly.

“She has been gone for a really long time, (but) she has incentive for life. She has a beautiful daughter who always sees her, she is really involved and she goes to all the meetings. She is someone who is really trying,” said Blanke.

“There is nothing to indicate foul play at this time and police believe she may still be in the Kelowna area,” said RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “Since Cassandra’s disappearance, police have followed up on several leads and possible sightings, however she remains missing. Police are concerned for Miller’s health and well-being and friends and family report that it is out of character for her to be out of contact for this long.”

Miller is a 28 year-old Caucasian woman, five-foot-two inches tall, with brown hair, blue eyes and freckles.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to contact police, or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net
