A fundraiser has been launched to hire a private investigator to help look for Caitlin Potts

Still searching for Caitlin

A fundraiser has been launched to help raise money to search for a missing woman.

Caitlin Potts, 27, has been missing since Feb. 22, 2016.

The Samson Cree First Nation single mother was last seen in Enderby, and a missing person's report was filed with RCMP on March 1 that year.

In May 2017, RCMP said they suspected foul play in her disappearance and released a surveillance video of Caitlin entering Orchard Park Mall in Kelowna on Feb. 21, 2016.

It's the last time she was seen.

To aid in the search, Victoria Love has started a campaign to raise money to hire a private detective to look in to Caitlin's disappearance.

In June 2016, Priscilla Potts, Caitlin’s mother, contacted Indigenous groups in British Columbia, who conducted their own search.

“Both they and Priscilla were losing faith with the RCMP’s investigation and felt it wasn’t thorough enough,” said Love on the GoFundMe page, adding “every dollar from this will go straight to Caitlin’s family to fund the private investigator’s search. I want to bring closure to Priscilla.”

Anyone with information on Caitlyn's disappearance is asked to call call Priscilla Potts at 587-926-0206 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Caitlyn Potts is one of four women who went missing in the Enderby-Sicamous area around the same time.

Ashley Simpson had been living in the Yankee Flats area near Silver Creek, but has not been seen or heard from since April 28, 2016.

On July 22, 2016, Deanna Mildred Wertz, 46, was reported missing from the Enderby area.

Nicole Bell, 31, was reported missing to police Sept. 7, 2017 from the Sicamous area. She was last seen Sept. 2.
