Patricia Johnson, a 24-year-old heroin addict
and prostitute, was last seen Feb 27.

A frantic Vancouver mom wants police to add her daughter to the list of 31 missing Downtown Eastside women.

``She was here on New Year's Day and I told her, `Patty, you're not even going to see 25 if you keep on -- you'll be missing just like those women down there,' '' Marion Bryce, a 42-year-old waitress, said at her Mount Pleasant home. ``I just pray every day that she's all right.''

Her daughter, Patricia Johnson, was seen last night on the Bravo cable-TV documentary Heroines.

Shot last year, the film follows six street women who inject drugs and survive on the streets.

But Johnson, 24, who worked on Hastings Street at the Patricia Hotel and outside the Army and Navy store, vanished at the end of February and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Bryce says her daughter, a heroin addict, was last seen Feb. 27 and hasn't cashed her welfare cheques since then.

Johnson also stopped making regular phone calls to her 20-year-old sister, Kathy.

Bryce said Johnson's two children, Autumn Rose, 6, and Eric, 7, are worried about their mom.

``They live with their dad and she would phone them on their birthdays,'' said Bryce, who has put missing posters along Hastings Street. ``She hasn't called them in six months. They ask where she is and we tell them she's in Victoria working.''

Bryce said her daughter had been working on the street for about four years.

``I think maybe that guy has got her, that serial killer down there,'' she added.

Anyone with information can phone Bryce at 874-4509.

In April, city police added three other names to the list of missing women, bringing the total missing from the area since 1984 to 31.
