MACKENZIE, BC: On Sunday, June 19, 2022 at 6:50 PM, the Mackenzie RCMP received a report of a suspicious vehicle on Highway 97 near the junction of Highway 39…
It was reported that a man, driving a newer white pickup, approached a woman while she was in her vehicle parked at the junction. The unknown man asked her where she was going. The woman did not provide that information and left the area without further incident.
A short time later on Highway 97, the woman saw a vehicle, described as a newer model white van, pull onto the highway and stop causing the woman to also stop. A man, (not the same one from earlier) got out of the van and approached her vehicle.
The woman drove around the stopped vehicle and proceeded on her way without any contact with this person. A man, matching the description of the man from earlier was seen in this white van. The incident was reported to the police and an investigation is ongoing.
“At this time we do not know why the woman was approached, or why the van stopped on the highway and we look for information to identify the men and the vehicles reported to be involved,” said Cst Xavier Del Vecchio-Roy, Mackenzie RCMP.
Anyone with any information on this is asked to call the Mackenzie RCMP at (250) 997-3288 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
