Andrews was last seen on April 7, 2010 leaving her home on 99 Avenue on foot, after speaking with her mother around 7 p.m. In the video, Corporal Bill Robinson of the RCMP E Division Serious Crime Unit says a neighbour said Andrews had mentioned she was going to visit a male friend. She hasn’t been seen or spoken with since. Police have not ruled out foul play in her disappearance, and are treating her case as a homicide.
Andrews was 28 years old and approximately three months pregnant at the time of her disappearance, and was reportedly excited for the birth of her first child. Her parents had been out shopping with her for baby items just two days earlier, and say it was out of character for her not to keep in touch with them.
“For her to just stop communicating was absolutely and totally out of character for Abigail,” says her mother Debbie Andrews in the video. “She was in contact with me all the time. She phoned me, I would say, pretty well every day.”
RCMP now says it has a suspect in the case, and is appealing to anyone with any information about Andrews’ disappearance.
“We believe that this person has spoken to people about what they did, and we’re asking those people to contact us, no matter how small or how unimportant they may feel their information is,” says Corporal Robinson.
“For us she was our daughter, she was a person, she has value to us and to other people, and we would like to know what has happened to her,” adds Debbie Andrews. “So if anybody does have any knowledge of that, it would ask them to come and tell the police what they know, whatever it is, so that they can do what they need to do in order to find out what happened to our daughter.”
Abigail Andrews is described as six feet tall, 200 pounds, with brown hair. She has hazel eyes and a tattoo of tribal art on her lower back. As the time of her disappearance, she’s believed to have been wearing black pants and a white shirt with a dark blue or black vest and jacket.
Anyone who may have information about Andrews’ whereabouts or her disappearance is asked to contact the E Division Serious Crime Unit at 778-290-3900 or contact their local police department. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
