Tina Parr was last seen alive during the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 25 at a residence on Martin Avenue in Kelowna. Her closest acquaintances told police she would have only gone to Knox Mountain willingly with someone she knew.

It has been almost 30 years since this crime occurred and police are hoping to talk to anyone who could help with the investigation.
