SYD­NEY — Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Po­lice Ser­vice are con­tin­u­ing to re­main hope­ful that tips from the pub­lic will help them solve the dis­ap­pear­ance of a 59-yearold Syd­ney woman. Deb­bie Ann Hutchin­son was re­ported miss­ing April 24 and the last known sight­ing of her was April 14 by a fam­ily mem­ber. A po­lice spokesper­son said Fri­day in­ves­ti­ga­tors con­tinue to treat the file as a miss­ing per­sons case in the ab­sence of any ev­i­dence to sug­gest foul play. Po­lice and mem­bers of Cape Bre­ton Ground Search and Res­cue did an extensive search last month of a wooded area near Cos­sitt Heights Drive af­ter the shell of Hutchin­son’s burned-out car was dis­cov­ered. An aerial search was also con­ducted.

Po­lice also con­ducted a can­vass of Hutchin­son’s neigh­bour­hood to de­ter­mine if nearby res­i­dents ob­served or heard any­thing sus­pi­cious prior to the dis­ap­pear­ance.

Po­lice say they have re­ceived no in­di­ca­tion of any con­tact by Hutchin­son in­volv­ing fam­ily or friends.

Hutchin­son is de­scribed as five feet tall and weigh­ing ap­prox­i­mately 95 pounds. She has brown eyes and gray­ing hair. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact po­lice at 902-563-5151 or anony­mously through Crime Stop­pers.
