Teen last seen in Agassiz

Police looking for help in locating missing 17-year-old from Lytton

RCMP are looking for Lytton teen Justine Abbott

(Editor’s Note: This story has been edited. An original police release stated the missing teen was last seen at the Agassiz Chevron. There is no longer an Agassiz Chevron. It is now a PetroCan station.)

RCMP need help locating a missing Lytton teen, who was last seen in Agassiz.

Justine Abbott, 17, left Lytton on Monday at about 10 a.m. She was hitch-hiking. The investigation has led police to believe that Abbott arrived in Agassiz before noon that day and was at the Petro-Can gas station at Morrow Road.

Since that time, police have been unable to determine the teen’s activities or whereabouts. There is no reason to believe that Abbott has left Agassiz.

ABBOTT is described by the RCMP as having an Aboriginal background, with brown hair and brown eyes. She is 5’7″, 120lbs with a thin build. She was last seen wearing a red and black plaid jacket with black cuffs and fur collar, a white hoodie, dark pants and boots.

If you have information about the whereabouts of Justine Abbott, please contact your local police or

Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
