MISSING WOMEN JOINT TASK FORCE NEWS MEDIA UPDATE - 1:00 PM

MISSING WOMEN JOINT TASK FORCE
NEWS MEDIA UPDATE - THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 2002

(CATE) Today's news media update brings you important new information and will answer some media questions which have come up this week.

This is a very fluid investigation and the number of investigators working on this file will change...when and how many investigators may be added to this case has not been determined. When we make significant changes to the team size or structure, we will let families know and then you.

The fact is...there is no definitive time frame attached to the search now being conducted. The search will continue as long as it is deemed necessary to the case. Right now we can say we expect to be on the farm search for at least one year.

In its ongoing review, the Missing Women's Joint Task Force has found descriptions of five additional women who match the profile of the existing 50 missing women. We are adding them to the list but need the public's assistance in our attempts to locate the women.

(SCOTT) The families of the additional five women were advised that their loved ones may be added to the existing list of missing women. The families of the other missing women were contacted by investigators as well with this information.

Two of the five women are historical missing cases and have come to our attention as a result of our ongoing file review. The other three women were reported missing to police as a result of the recent media coverage surrounding the missing women investigation.


The five women are:

(CATE) The second woman is Yvonne Marie BOEN, age 34, born on November 30, 1967. Ms. Boen was last seen on March 16, 2001 and reported missing to Surrey RCMP on March 21st, 2001. She is described as being 5 feet, 10 inches tall, having blonde hair and blue eyes, and being Caucasian. Ms. Boen has also used the last name of 'ENGLAND.'

The third woman is Tiffany Louise DREW, age 27, and born on January 13, 1975. Ms. Drew was last seen on December 31, 1999. She was reported missing to Vancouver police on February 8th, 2002. Ms. Drew is described as being 4 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 95 pounds, and having long, wavy blonde hair and blue eyes. She is Caucasian.

(SCOTT) The fourth woman is Maria Laura LALIBERTE, age 52, born November 7th, 1949. She was last seen on January 1st, 1997 and reported missing to Vancouver police on March 8th, 2002. Ms. Laliberte is described as being 5 feet 6 inches tall, has brown hair, brown eyes and is Native Indian. She often uses the alias Kim KELLER.

The fifth woman is Ruby Anne HARDY, age 37, born on March 23, 1965. Ms. Hardy was last seen in 1998 and was reported missing to Vancouver police yesterday, March 27th, 2002. She is described as being 5 feet, 2 inches tall, weighing 131 pounds, having brown hair and eyes and being Native Indian. She often uses the name 'Ruby GALLOWAY'.


(CATE) All five of these women match the profile of the missing women we are looking for. We are asking anyone with information about these women to contact the Missing Women Tip Line which is 1-877-687-3377.

(SCOTT) We can say that as a direct result of the recent media coverage surrounding the missing women investigation, we have been contacted by eight women who were reported missing in the past and who were a part of our file review - which is different from the 50 women who are definitely missing. These eight women contacted the tip line to assure investigators that they are safe.

Thank you, and now we can take a few questions...
