Missing Woman - Police Seek Public’s Help
Halifax Regional Police is seeking the public’s help in locating a missing Chester woman.
Seventy-nine year-old Millie Faulkner was last seen outside the Dickson Centre on University Avenue in Halifax today at 11:15 a.m. after she stepped out of the building for a cigarette. Mrs Faulkner is not familiar with the Halifax area, has limited mobility and was in Halifax with a family member for an appointment. Officers believe she might be on foot but haven’t been able to locate her.
Mrs Faulkner is described as a white woman, 5’4”, with a thin build and short white hair. She was last seen wearing a royal blue pant suit and light coloured top.
There is no information to suggest that Mrs Faulkner has met with foul play; however police are concerned for her well-being due to her limited mobility and unfamiliarity with the Halifax area. Officers request that Mrs Faulkner or anyone with information on her whereabouts calls Halifax Regional Police at (902) 490-5020.
