Former Kitimat Woman Still Missing in Abbotsford

There's a northwest connection to a missing persons case in Abbotsford.

Marie Stuart, who hasn't been seen since Tuesday December 27th, is originally from Kitimat and a graduate of Mount Elizabeth Secondary School.

A family friend says her disappearance is completely out of character.

The 38-year-old Stuart, who is five months pregnant, was reported missing by her husband, Leslie Scott Schellenberg, who said the two of them had been playing the smartphone game "Pokemon Go", and had arrived by bus in front of Sevenoaks Shopping Centre in Abbotsford before going their separate ways.

She hasn't been seen since.

Police say they were able to corroborate Schellenberg's story by reviewing security video that showed him and his wife going in separate directions after leaving the bus.
