Authorities now believe that 15-year-old Tonielle King-Rose may be in the Alberta area as the search for the missing Sechelt girl continues.

In an update provided Saturday afternoon March 15, Sunshine Coast RCMP Cpl. Steve Chubey said that RCMP are urgently looking for the young girl who has been missing since early morning on Wednesday March 12, after leaving her home in Sechelt.

Chubey said RCMP have confirmed that she is no longer on the Sunshine Coast and indications are that she may be in the Alberta area.

The RCMP and Tonielle's family remain very concerned about her well-being and are asking anyone with information to immediately contact their local police, said Chubey.

RCMP did not release details as to what has led them to believe that Tonielle may be in the Alberta area.

West Vancouver Police, meanwhile, issued information through a media release in the early morning hours of Saturday confirming that Tonielle was spotted in West Vancouver the morning she went missing.

It has been confirmed that she was seen arriving in West Vancouver at 8 a.m. Wednesday morning on the Langdale ferry in Horseshoe Bay and her bag, ID and some personal items were turned in to the Park Royal lost and found later that morning, said Const. Jeff Palmer in a news release.

Palmer said at the time of the sighting in West Vancouver she was wearing a light grey toque, a dark nylon jacket that may have a "North Arm" logo embroidered on the front, blue pants and red converse runners when she arrived in West Vancouver. It is also possible that she could be wearing tan short boots.

At the time of the Saturday morning media update, Palmer said she may still be on the North Shore, but that it was possible that she had travelled as far as Chilliwack and may be in company of one or two males.

Tonielle is Caucasian, approximately 5'8 tall and weighs approximately 135 pounds, with short brown hair. She normally has her hair held back in a bandana.

Anyone who may know of Tonielle's whereabouts, or have information on where she may be, are asked to contact Sunshine Coast RCMP at 604-885-2266 or call 9-1-1.
