Vancouver Police Search for Missing Vancouver Woman

The Vancouver Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit is asking for the public’s help to find a 26-year-old Vancouver woman.

Karissa Koks was recently reported as missing to the Vancouver Police by a family member. However, it is believed that she has been missing since last fall.

The last confirmed sighting of Karissa was on October 7, 2017, when she went to a government building near Powell Street and Heatley Avenue in Vancouver.

Karissa is 5’4″ tall, with a small build, black hair, and brown eyes. However, she is known to change her appearance frequently.

If anyone sees Karissa, they are asked to call 9-1-1. Any information about her location, or that can confirm her well-being, can be given to Vancouver Police at 604-717-2530. Investigators are also appealing to Karissa to call police to confirm that she is okay.
