Prince George RCMP is appealing to the public for help in locating a woman who went missing along the Highway of Tears.

Friends and family reported Chrissy Sharon Alexander, 41, missing on Sept. 27 after not having seen her in about a week.

Alexander is described as being first nations, five-foot four and 126 pounds, with shoulder-length brown hair, brown eyes and glasses.

She usually goes by the name of Chris, and may be in the company of a man known only as “Nelson,” said Cpl. Craig Douglass of the Prince George RCMP in a statement.

The two may be linked to an older, white minivan.

Prince George is located along Highway 16, dubbed the Highway of Tears because dozens of teenage girls and young women have gone missing or were found murdered along it.

Many of the victims were first nations.

Up to 43 victims have gone missing along the highway, ranging in age from 14 to 25, according to North Coast MLA Gary Coons. Most were hitchhiking.

Anyone with information about Alexander, or where she might be, is asked to call Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at or text to CRIMES using the keyword “pgtips.”
