The Disappearance of Roberta Marie Sims

 

Case File Overview

Roberta (Robin) Marie Sims vanished from Prince George, BC, Canada sometime on or after May 6th, 2017.

Authorities believe that Robin has been murdered.

Many witnesses came forward and reported last seeing Robin during the afternoon of Saturday May 6th, 2017 near her home. Robin’s address is 3015 3rd Avenue, Prince George. Robin was also spotted  near the BX Pub and the Spruceland CIBC bank around the time she disappeared.

Police suspect Robin was murdered shortly after these sightings and that her vehicle, a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer with the BC licence plate BH2 48X, was used by the perpetrator until it was located by police.

Sgt. Todd Wilson of the Prince George RCMP Serious Crimes Unit said, Although Robin’s vehicle has been located by police, we believe that it was used in her murder.

Robin’s dog was located with her vehicle, although it’s unclear if the dog was alive when it was discovered.

The police are looking for anyone who may have seen Robin’s vehicle between Saturday May 6th and Wednesday May 10th, 2017.

Authorities are also seeking information about Sims’ habits and regular activities.

Roberta (Robin) Marie Sims:

  • Caucasian female
  • 55 years old
  • 163 cm (5’4”)
  • 70 kg (154 lbs)
  • Long blonde hair

Case File Theories

The police aren’t releasing too much information about this new and active investigation. However, they’ve explained that Robin’s disappearance is “very suspicious and out of character.” Moreover, authorities have publicly stated that they’re treating Robin’s disappearance as a homicide and have turned the case over to the Serious Crime Unit. Additionally, police have said they believe Robin’s vehicle “was used in her murder.”

Given all of this, I think it’s safe to safe to say that Robin has been murdered. Unfortunately, though, not enough is known about Robin’s case to offer any suspects.

Prince George is in a well-forested area with countless spots to hide a body. Hunting season is fast-approaching, and I hope that if Robin has indeed been murdered her remains are located before snow begins to fall in the region.

    I Am Not Sure If This Is Gonna Help, But Around The Time Robin Went Missing, These People Heard A Sound Of A Woman Screaming In Aleza Lake. At Rae Lee’s Old Residence 33133 Upper Fraser Rd. There Has Been Some-One Spotted There Too, They Said It Was A Homeless Man (Desmond Hallem) From Willow River.

      Hi Anne. Thank you for this information. There is so little out there about this case that anything helps. The thought of the screams is extremely unsettling. Even if this is rumour, I suggest you mention this information to the local police. I’m sure every little lead they can check out might help solve this case. Thanks again!

    This really does sound like a stranger abduction. The hardest kind of case to solve. Sounds like a car jacking were Robin just happened to be in the wrong place. Would be great if Anne’s information might be useful in solving this to give resolution to her family.

      Hi Gracie. Thanks for your comment. It definitely seems as though Robin’s disappearance could be a car jacking. It’s the wrong place at the wrong time cases that sometimes frighten me the most; this could happen to anyone! I’m worried Robin hasn’t been located and the weather in the region is about to change, but I hope her loved ones can find some resolution soon.
