They have identified a vehicle of interest, which is described as a white four-door vehicle, possibly from the 1990s. The vehicle had older square headlights and a large front grille.

Earlier on the evening of Sept. 25, the vehicle might have been seen being pulled out of a ditch by a red truck. Anyone who saw these vehicles or who could have dash-cam footage of them is asked to call the Comox Valley RCMP. (Ref. 2020-15746)
