A massive search effort continues Thursday for a 48-year-old Port Moody woman missing since Monday.

Trina Hunt was reported missing by her husband on Jan. 18.  He last saw her at around 6 a.m. at their Heritage Woods home when he was leaving for work, according to Port Moody police. When he returned home she was gone, and friends believe she may have gone for a walk.

Hunt is believed to be wearing a black North Face jacket, with a teal green collar, and pink and purple running shoes.

Police are searching for a 48-year-old Port Moody woman missing since Monday from her Heritage Woods neighbourhood home.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact Port Moody Det. Mike Lu at 604-461-3456.

Coquitlam Search and Rescue have been using ground crews and an RCMP helicopter this week to search trails and the Heritage Woods neighbourhood. A spokesperson for Coquitlam SAR directed all calls to the Port Moody police.

Port Moody police have not yet returned calls for more information.

On Wednesday, hundreds of volunteers from the community joined a search grid, according to a Facebook update by her sister-in-law.  

“We want nothing more than for Trina to come home, and we need your help, so we will not withhold information. There have been lots of posts insinuating that, but let us focus on the true task which is finding Trina. The detectives are doing their jobs, and our job is to increase presence on the ground and increase community awareness,” the update says.

Volunteers have set up a neighbourhood search command post located at 43 Maple Drive in Port Moody.

Hunt was known to walk on main streets in the neighbourhood, or the very common trails, according to friends.

They say she did not have her cell phone or keys with her on Monday.

Christina Gower, who ran as a federal NDP candidate for MP in Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam last election, said on the Port Moody Facebook page that Hunt has also been known to walk along Forest Parkway, Hawthorne, Fernway and Cliffwood.

Flyers have been posted around the surrounding neighbourhoods asking for volunteers to hep search. Anyone who joins the search is asked to be safe and not traverse the trails alone. They are also being asked to charge their cell phones and pack emergency items.
