Ashley Simpson one of four women who went missing from region

Still missing four years later

Four years after her disappearance, there is still no sign of Ashley Simpson, one of four women missing from the same region.

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

Police investigated her disappearance and several searches of the area were made, but there was no sign of the 31 year old.

Last year, Simpson's mother, Cindy, made a plea for anyone who has information about Ashley’s disappearance to come forward.

“I wake up and I pray today is the day we find Ashley. So far, my prayers haven't been answered. Someone please answer my family’s prayers for my Ashley and bring my daughter home,” she said.

Simpson was one of three women to go missing in the North Okanagan region that year.

Caitlin Potts went missing two months earlier from the Enderby area.

Potts was last seen on Feb. 22, 2016 and made contact with friends on social media Feb. 26, but has not been heard from since.

The 27-year-old First Nations woman was reported missing March 1, 2016.

There has also been no sign of two other missing women from the same region.

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.

Vernon teen Traci Genereaux was last heard from on May 29, 2017.

The remains of the 18 year old were located on a farm on Salmon River Road following an extensive police investigation. Police called her death suspicious, but no charges have been filed in the case.
