The Fort St. John RCMP need your help to identifying a vehicle that may have assisted Sean Budnick in leaving the Wonowon area.
The RCMP received information early Friday morning indicating that Budnick was in the Wonowon area at approximately 7a.m. Members immediately attended and learned Budnick had departed the area prior to the arrival of the RCMP.
Police need your help to identify a vehicle that may have assisted Budnick in leaving the Wonowon area. The vehicle appears to be a light coloured GMC or Chevrolet SUV. Police wish to speak with the driver of the vehicle, who they believe may have information that could advance the investigation.
The 42 year-old is charged with a total of five offences, including attempted murder and forcible confinement after an incident involving his ex-girlfriend. Earlier this week the RCMP issued a Canada wide warrant for his arrest.
The woman was confined and beaten in a Fort St. John residence for several hours on Feb. 4, then was taken in the car on the Alaska Highway towards Charlie Lake.
As the car began to turn onto the 271 Road, witnesses say the woman jumped out of the car and the driver tried to back up over her.
Police say they do not know whether Budnick is in Fort St. John or if he has left the area.
Anyone with information about Budnick’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Fort St. John RCMP detachment at 250-787-8140 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
