RNC releases new information on case of Cortney Lake
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:
Michener Ave (and neighbourhoods)
Old Placentia Road
When she disappeared, Lake was wearing a grey parka with a pink liner (or hoody) inside, plaid shirt and black pants and wearing glasses. Lake is described as being 5-8 and 110120 lbs with light brown hair.
