Police call on public in case of missing 48-year-old Port Moody woman​

Trina Hunt was last seen at her home Jan. 18 at 6 a.m., according to a spokesperson for the Port Moody Police Department.


'It's chaos': Massive search underway for missing Port Moody woman​

A sweeping search and investigation are underway for a 48-year-old Port Moody woman reported missing after her husband came home to an empty house.

Trina Hunt was last reported seen Jan. 18 at around 6 a.m. at her Heritage Woods home when her husband left for work. When he returned, she was nowhere to be found, prompting a call to the Port Moody Police Department, police spokesperson Sgt. Ian Morrison said.

That evening a Coquitlam Search and Rescue ground crew was deployed to the area around her house, where volunteer rescuers combed the nearby trails and wilderness area for the woman in the first of two eight-hour operational periods, said Coquitlam SAR president Tom Zajac.

In the nearly 48 hours since Hunt was first reported missing, Sgt. Morrison confirmed Port Moody police, an RCMP helicopter and a canine unit have all joined the search. “Folks need to be aware they may see the helicopter in the area again,” said Sgt. Morrison.

Just reading all. Strange. They suspend the search and say foul play is not suspected. She has been gone 11 days now but foul play not suspected. What does that leave except she left on her own and of her own accord and yet can't let people or police know she is safe?

I agree with others in reading this thread. Why was he so quick to assume she was missing when he got home? Vehicle there but not her? She never went anywhere so it was odd, is that it? Why?

Why are they only looking for video for the period of the day from a certain time to certain time and not before or after 5 p.m. for instance? Oh, I see now it is changed to 8 p.m. How do they know about the coat and shoes she was wearing? Because the hub says they are missingand it is what she usually wears or because she was seen on camera in those items? I would assume hub says they are missing because if seen on camera, they would likely have a pants description like jeans or athletic pants and more. Hat? Hair down or up? Doesn't sound like a camera sighting is what I mean.

Some odd remarks too. The coworker of the hub was it? What a great couple they were but she never met her. So where is it she gets that from if she did not even know her? She leaves her phone, keys and wallet at home but foul play is not suspected. What?? Meaning she did that on purpose, again no foul play, how else are we to take that?

Another says she was not a hiker and would only walk on a road if she walked. Okay...

Is this home in a neighborhood or town with close neighbors like the staging area is? Or in the middle of nowhere? I think I looked at all articles and no real info on that other than there is some dense foliage around their home or some such. Since the PD was called, here in the US that would mean you lived in town in the city limits, not sure though about Canada...

He might’ve been quick to assume something was terribly wrong because she left a note. And the coworker might’ve said they had a good marriage because of input from Trina.

She left a note? Or you are thinking she may have? Not doubting just wondering if I missed that. Up too early and skimmed the linked articles.

Because of that I confuse easily at the moment. What I read the coworker never met nor knew Trina so she would not have her input? Again though, I may have missed something. She may have that from what others said about the couple or from the husband but not from Trina as she never met nor talked to her she said.

Just trying to get up to speed, not debating or arguing, just wondering if I missed things. I did not see for instance that she left her phone, wallet and keys at home til one of the last later linked articles/posts. That would give reason for alarm I guess if she was not there but those things were if it was typical of her to always have her phone for instance if she left home.

I’m thinking she may have. That might’ve caused him to call Police right away. I’m just putting out scenarios. When I was in class with the detectives, they said that they throw all kinds of scenarios out there and try to not be tunnel visioned.

I am also thinking that maybe she had been contemplating self harm and that is what made it such an emergency so fast. I'm still stuck on the fact that he thought it was an emergency as soon as he got home. He had to have a reason whether nefarious or not. Most people wouldn't think about it for a bit without calling around first (which he might have and we just haven't heard about). I'm still not liking his story though.

That's what I thought but wanted to be sure as I thought it may have been something I missed.

Lack of information on missing Port Moody woman creating a climate of fear: SFU criminologist​

An SFU criminologist says lack of information about an investigation into a missing Port Moody woman is creating a climate of fear and contributing to posts about abductions in the Tri-Cities and beyond.

This weekend Coquitlam RCMP asked people to cease posting third-party reports about white vans, asking people to make direct reports to police so they could be followed up.

Since then, a debate has raged on Tri-City social media groups and across Metro Vancouver about the difference between rumour mongering and community safety information.

RCMP’s response to abduction rumors exacerbates MMIWG crisis: Union of BC Indian Chiefs​

FOLLOWING reports of attempted abductions of women in the Tri-Cities area, Coquitlam RCMP issued a statement on February 6, 2020 that urged people to stop spreading “unproven rumors.” In their response, the RCMP failed to address the fear, mistrust, and colonial forces that compel women to depend on social media mobilization instead of the police for their safety, and ultimately dismissed the deeply rooted fear and trauma that plagues Indigenous women as a result of the ongoing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) crisis, said the Union of BC Indian Chiefs (UBCIC) on Wednesday.

But this is a concern to the UBCIC, which appears to have concerns about the safety for women:

“The RCMP missed an invaluable opportunity– rather than berate vulnerable, fearful women for and dismiss their reasonably founded fears, they should have called attention to the systemic issues of violence, discrimination, and misogyny that have fueled the MMIWG crisis and contribute to the growing number of missing women cases in Lower Mainland,” said Kukpi7 Judy Wilson, Secretary Treasurer of the UBCIC. “By putting out a statement that fails to respect the real concerns and experiences of the women in our community, the RCMP are greatly discouraging people from coming forward in the future to share their stories of violence, victimization, and discrimination. Furthermore, they are contributing to the silencing of the issue of sexual violence that has long infiltrated our community and made women, girls, and people of marginalized genders fearful and hyper-vigilant. As an active member of the Coalition on MMIWG2S, UBCIC is committed to ensuring the National Inquiry’s Calls for Justice are implemented and honored by law enforcement, and that colonial tactics are never used to deny or discredit the experiences and truths of our women.”

Case of missing Port Moody woman does not meet standard for IHIT involvement, police say​

The case of a missing Port Moody woman does not meet the mandate of the Lower Mainland's Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, police said Wednesday, approximately one month after her disappearance.

The Port Moody Police Department said in a news release Wednesday that the investigation is "active and ongoing."

"Our investigators have pursued the available avenues of inquiry including minute by minute examination of a massive amount of recovered CCTV footage, tips from the public, and numerous in-person interviews," police said in their release.

"We have also contacted our partners at the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT), as part of that team's mandate is to investigate suspicious missing person cases where foul play is suspected," they added. "At this time, evidence indicates that this missing person case does not meet IHIT's mandate."

Sadly I forgot about this case I guess because of no news. Somehow I missed the last few posts. Just what are they even doing on this case since it happened? Nothing? Apparently if she left on her own she has not come back so...

It sounds as if the community is upset at the way it is being handled or not handled. Do they think it is foul play yet? Apparently it does not fit the criterial for the homicide investigation team so I wonder what they are doing to find her since this all happened. No information yet it doesn't sound like of any kind?

I wonder if the husband is out there front and center pushing for investigation and answers...
