Abbotsford Police appeal for information about couple missing for two years

No sign of Rose Allan and Jonathan Wood since late 2013

Jonathan Wood and Rosalie Allan

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is appealing for information in the disappearance of a local couple.

Rosalie (Rose) Jean Allan, 48, was reported missing two years ago today – on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013. Her boyfriend Jonathan Jay Jeffrey Wood, 47, also went missing at around the same time.

At the time of her disappearance, police said Allan had no fixed address but usually made regular contact with several people in Abbotsford and had previously lived at a residence in the community.

In February 2014, her parents, Bob Allan and Jean King, held a press conference in which they appealed for her to contact them.

Police at the time indicated that Allan and Wood had been living together in Abbotsford in October 2013. Their landlord noticed that Allan had moved out first, followed by Jonathan a few days later.

Police said the couple moved around a lot.

Wood is wanted on a warrant for a breach of his 90-day conditional sentence. He had been given that sentence in November 2013 on a charge of theft under $5,000, according to the provincial court database.

Wood had also been charged in August 2011 after police seized a sawed-off shotgun, a rifle, ammunition and methamphetamine from a home in the 34000 block of Gladys Avenue.

That residence had been the scene of a bust the previous month in which 12 weapons were found. Wood was also arrested in connection with that incident but charges were never laid.

Allan stands 5’ 4”, weighs 130 pounds and has blue eyes and brown hair.

Wood stands 6’ 2”, weighs 180 pounds and has blue eyes and brown hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call the APD at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (22973).
