Another Abbotsford woman reported missing
The Abbotsford Police Department would like to hear from an Abbotsford woman who was reported missing by an out-of-province family member on Sept. 27.
Const. Ian MacDonald said police believe that nothing untoward has happened to Kerry-Lynn Osbourne, 40, but they would like to confirm her whereabouts.
The family member became concerned when regular contact with Osbourne had not occurred for over a month.
APD investigators attended Osbourne's last known address in the 4400 block of Blauson Boulevard in Abbotsford, and found the residence vacant.
Police have determined that none of her school-aged children is enrolled in the Abbotsford school district this year.
MacDonald said police believe the children are with Osbourne. They are also trying to confirm whether her common-law husband is with the family.
Police say Osbourne, who has five children aged three to 21, has not engaged in any social media activity since late September, and no phone or email contact attempts have been successful.
Osbourne did attend a government office in Abbotsford on Tuesday, Oct. 1 and was observed by staff at that location.
At that time, she appeared to be in good health, MacDonald said.
MacDonald said that following weekend news reports about Osbourne's disappearance, police received credible reports from people who said they saw her or interacted with her last week.
"We would just like first-person contact with her," he said.
Osbourne ran as a candidate for the Excalibur Party in the Abbotsford West riding in the last provincial election in May.
She is 5'4" with blond hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (222973).
Meanwhile, the search continues for another missing Abbotsford woman – Erica Schmidt, 59. She has been missing since leaving her home on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 5.
