Police are asking the public to help locate the woman

RCMP are asking the public to help locate a Coquitlam woman who has been missing since last week.

Charlene Dawn Sim, 33, is a subject of a warrant under the BC Mental Health Act, after last being seen at her home on May 10, police said in a statement Thursday.

Sim is not believed to be a threat to others, but it is possible she is trying to avoid police.

Sim is also known to wear pink dresses and headscarves.

Anyone who sees Sim or has information about her whereabouts is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP.
