Missing 89-year-old woman from Richmond found driving in Barriere area

Vehicle located travelling slowly southbound on Highway 5 through the Fishtrap Canyon area

On Jan. 20, just before 6 p.m.,  the Barriere RCMP were requested to make patrols for a missing person from Richmond who was reported to have been seen in the Kamloops area earlier.

Police received information that the vehicle was spotted on Highway 5, northbound out of Kamloops, so patrols were made south to McLure. There was further information received that the vehicle was spotted on Westsyde Road, travelling north of Kamloops and last seen around 5:31 p.m.

The Barriere RCMP member turned northbound on Highway 5 and located the subject vehicle travelling slowly southbound on Highway 5 through the Fishtrap Canyon area. The vehicle was stopped and the identity of the driver was confirmed to be that of 89 year old Evelyn Logan from Richmond who was reported missing on January 19 in Richmond.

The vehicle was moved off the highway to a safe location and further discussion with the female took place with further information gathered on her travels. BC Ambulance were contacted to check her well-being, and after assessment, she was transported to the Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops for further assessment by medical personnel.

The family was immediately contacted and updated with her condition and location so they could make plans to assist their mother.

Police say that it appears the lady had driven in confusion from Richmond to the Barriere area since leaving her Richmond home on Jan. 19.   She apparently suffers from a mild form of dementia and has driven long distances in a similar fashion in the past.
