Nirla Sharma, 44, was last seen Feb. 24 in New Westminster

Major crimes investigators have released new surveillance footage of Nirla Sharma, 44, who mysteriously disappeared in the early hours from her New Westminster home last month.

The video, released Tuesday, shows Sharma walking alone in the Queensborough Landing business area at 3:27 a.m. on Feb. 24.

Police are also asking anyone with dash-cam footage who was driving over the Queensborough bridge between 3:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. that day to contact investigators, Sgt. Jeff Scott said in a statement.

Sharma was last seen in her home in Queensborough area at 9 p.m. on Feb. 23. She did not show up at her workplace in Burnaby that morning. Since her disappearance, police and search and rescue have scoured the area.

“As the days go by, we become more and more concerned for her well-being,” Scott said.

Sharma is described as south Asian, roughly 5’3” with a slim build and weighing about 138 pounds. She has short, black hair and brown eyes.
