Police in Ontario are searching for a 30-year-old Six Nations woman who was in distress when she cut off communications with family and friends before disappearing early Monday morning.
Six Nations Police Const. Janna Miller said police are “actively searching” for Brittany Kira Bomberry who appears to have left her family home in Six Nations sometime between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. on Monday.
Miller said Six Nations police have since contacted police in Brantford, Ont., after a trace of Bomberry’s cell phone revealed it had last “pinged” off a cell tower in Brantford’s north-end at 8 a.m. Monday.
“That is the last location of the cell phone,” said Miller. “Brantford police is aware she is missing.”
Six Nations sits just about 100 kilometres southwest of Toronto.
Miller said a ground search involving the K-9 unit was also conducted of the Bomberry family’s four-hectare property.
Bomberry’s family and friends continued a desperate search Tuesday distributing flyers at local gas stations and convenience stores.
“I have contacted everyone that I know,” said Bomberry’s sister Ashley Bomberry. “So far nobody has heard from her”
The family has also contacted taxi companies and plans to expand the search to London, Ont., and Hamilton.
“We love her. We miss her and we want her to return home safely,” said Ashley Bomberry.
Allana McDougall was one of the last people Brittany Bomberry contacted before disappearing. McDougall said Bomberry texted her shortly after 12:30 a.m. on Monday saying she wanted to go to counselling.
“She hasn’t contacted me and I have been texting her,” said McDougall, who is one of Bomberry’s closest friends. “No response whatsoever.”
McDougall said Bomberry celebrated her birthday last week and recently went through a break-up.
Miller said anyone with information on Bomberry’s whereabouts should contact Six Nations Police at 519 445 2811.
