The Royal New­found­land Con­stab­u­lary has re­leased new in­for­ma­tion about the dis­ap­pear­ance of Cort­ney Lake and is again ap­peal­ing for the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance.

The RNC Ma­jor Crime Unit has new in­for­ma­tion on the time­line around Cort­ney LAKE’S dis­ap­pear­ance on June 7. New CCTV (closed-cir­cuit tele­vi­sion) footage from a res­i­dence on Welling­ton Cres­cent has been ob­tained by in­ves­ti­ga­tors in re­cent days. The video shows what police now be­lieve is the last known images of Cort­ney Lake be­fore all con­nec­tiv­ity with her phone and so­cial me­dia dis­con­tin­ued.

On Wed­nes­day, June 7 at 3:07 in the af­ter­noon, Lake was seen in CCTV footage (pre­vi­ously re­leased to the me­dia) at the Esso on An­der­son Ave. Police have learned through in­ter­views with wit­nesses that she spent the af­ter­noon with friends and fam­ily and was later dropped off at her home on Welling­ton Cres­cent in Mount Pearl. Newly ob­tained footage of Lake shows her walk­ing on Welling­ton Cres­cent away from her home to­ward the area of Lind­bergh Cres­cent/ruth Ave at ex­actly 7:52 PM.

The RNC is ap­peal­ing to all res­i­dents and busi­nesses in that area to review any CCTV cam­era footage they may have shortly af­ter 7:52 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, June 7, for Lake. Specif­i­cally res­i­dents of the fol­low­ing streets are asked to review any footage they may have:
