‘No evidence’ to support social media rumours about missing B.C. women, say police
RCMP in Coquitlam are warning the public to “stop spreading unproven rumours” about missing women and alleged abduction attempts.
It comes amid widespread circulation of several videos on platforms TikTok and Facebook, alleging a connection between the disappearances of several women in the Lower Mainland in recent weeks.
Some of the videos also allude, without evidence, to possible human trafficking, a possible serial killer or a white van or other suspicious vehicle that is approaching women.
In a media release, Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Michael McLaughin said police were investigating one reported incident, but had seen multiple videos circulating online.
