Parents seek missing Abbotsford woman

Abbotsford parents Bob Allan and Jean King want their daughter Rosalie to know that they love her and they want her to call.

Rosalie (Rose) Jean Allan, 46, was last seen in October in Abbotsford. She was reported missing on Dec. 31, 2013.

"This investigation has troubled us from the standpoint that we haven't received a lot of information," said Abbotsford police department spokesperson Cst. Ian MacDonald at a press conference on Wednesday.

Rosalie's father, Bob, said that his daughter was in good spirits when she went missing. He used to speak with her every few months.

Bob Allan"We want to get in touch with our daughter and want to see if she wants to get in touch with us. We love her and want her to know that we love her. Please, Rosalie, if you're out there, give us a call," he said.

Rosalie stands 5’4” tall and weighs 130 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes.

She is a vibrant person who makes friends easily, according to MacDonald. She would be recognizable to many people in the community.

Police are also looking for Rosalie's on-again-off-again boyfriend Jonathan Wood, 45. The two were living together in North Abbotsford in October. Their landlord noticed that Rosalie moved out first, and Jonathan moved out days later, according to MacDonald. The couple moved around a lot, with MacDonald describing them as people who had had challenges in life.

Wood has an outstanding theft warrant, but MacDonald said it was "not a serious matter."

"We want information on Jonathan and Rosalie. We want to make sure they are fine. Obviously we can deal with the warrant after," said MacDonald.
