A year after her disappearance, the Port Alberni RCMP are still looking for Shelly Jean Hofmann.
The woman was last seen on June 24th, 2016 in the 3000 block of 3rd Ave in front of Alberni Community & Women’s Services Society.
Shelly is described as a 49 year old Caucasian woman, 5 feet tall, 150 lbs, with blue eyes and short grey hair, and was often seen walking around downtown Port Alberni with her very distinctive walk.
She has a pronounced limp almost rocking from side to side and is hunched forward.
“Shelly’s disappearance remains an active and ongoing missing person’s investigation. Members of the General Investigation Section continue in their search for answers into Shelly’s whereabouts. We are urging the public for their help. What may seem inconsequential to you, may be the missing link in this investigative puzzle. Everything is important,” said Cpl. Amelia Hayden of the Port Alberni RCMP.
