G’usgimukw woman missing

Family and friends of a missing G’usgimukw woman say they’re frantic to hear from the woman who disappeared from her North Vancouver home in May, in a case now under investigation as a serious crime.

Angeline Eileen Pete is a 28-year-old Quatsino First Nation mom of a seven-year-old son who was last heard from nearly four months ago.

“She has never disappeared before — she’s been away, but never lost contact with her family,” Pete’s aunt, Cary-lee Calder, told the Gazette.

Pete was an avid Facebook contributor and made her last entry on the social website May 21.

“She was one of those people who posted everything in her life on Facebook,” said Calder.

“That’s why we’re alarmed she hasn’t been on.”

A missing person’s report was filed just six weeks ago because “we were trying to search for her on our own before that,” said Calder.

The investigation has now been turned over to the North Vancouver RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit which is actively following up on leads that may lead to Pete’s current whereabouts.

The family said the day before she disappeared, Pete got into a physical altercation with her boyfriend who allegedly punched her and split her lip in front of police officers, who promptly arrested the man.

“She even took a picture of her lip and posted that on Facebook,” said Calder.

The family has heard rumours Pete was working carnivals on the south island, but have been unable to confirm the stories.

“Tips keep coming in, but they’ve all turned up empty,” said Calder

“We’ve heard she’s on the mainland, Port Alberni, Detroit and on the North Island — we’ve heard everything.”

Pete is a 5 ft. 4-in. First Nations woman with long, dark-hair and brown eyes.

If anyone has any information regarding the whereabouts of Angeline Eileen Pete they are requested to contact the RCMP or the Quatsino Band 250-949-6245 and ask for Calder.
