Nelson resident Rain Shields, also known as Bella Black, who was last seen on Oct. 31, 2021, is still missing, according to the Nelson Police Department.
“A considerable effort was made last fall using search and rescue and a helicopter,” said Sgt. Dan Markevich in a July 12 email to the Nelson Star. “Just a few weeks ago another search was done using a human remains dog but was unsuccessful.”
In November, the police department received several tips from the public indicating that Shields was last seen in the area of Marsden Road and the Grohman Forest Service Road.
Shields, 56 years old at the time of her disappearance, is described by the police as approximately five-foot-seven with a medium build.
Anyone who knows anything about her whereabouts is asked to contact Nelson Police Department at 250-354-3919 or the local RCMP detachment at 250-352-2156.
