Video released of last time Potts was seen

Caitlin Potts went missing more than a year ago and is beleived to have been murdered but her body has yet to be found

RCMP investigators with the Southeast District Major Crime Unit (MCU) have released video surveillance images of Caitlin Potts entering the Orchard Park Mall Entrance on Feb. 21, 2016.

In the images Potts enters the mall at approximately 1:30 p.m. that Sunday afternoon.

The video surveillance is being released at this stage to provide a visual reminder to the public of Potts’ appearance and show what she may have been wearing near the time of her disappearance.

Those items include:

  • Three quarter length black jacket with a hood
  • Light coloured pants
  • Black winter boots
  • A hair tie (hair scrunchie)
  • A large light brown leather style hand bag
  • A white cell phone

RCMP investigators believe Potts’ disappearance is the result of foul play and her body has not been found. Investigators are issuing this news release at this time, as outdoor seasonal activities are picking up, with people spending more leisure time outside around their communities.

Previous reports that she was traveling to Calgary, AB, have not been substantiated. In the days leading up to her disappearance on Feb. 21, 2016, Potts had connections to Kelowna, West Kelowna, Armstrong, Salmon Arm and Enderby, B.C.
