Missing Sudbury woman had Lindsay ties; sister pleads for any local tips

By Roderick Benns

A Sudbury woman who has been missing since Tuesday Aug. 4 knew some people in the Lindsay area — and her sister is pleading for anyone in Kawartha Lakes who may have heard from her to let police know.

Shantel Amos reached out to the Advocate today by email about her sibling, 26-year-old Constance Richards, who also goes by Connie.

CBC News reports Richards was last seen “driving erratically in the area of Fox Lake Road in the Cartier area north of Sudbury at 2:30 p.m. Her vehicle was later found abandoned in a gravel pit.”

Richards’ mother, Pamela Hatch-Fogarty, says it’s unlike her daughter to leave and not say where she’s going, according to CBC.

“Our whole family is concerned for her safety,” Amos tells the Advocate.

Amos says her sister’s car was “found abandoned with her belongings inside.”

The Sudbury police have been doing ground searches since Saturday with canine and helicopters and there’s still no sign of her, according to Amos, “and no one has heard from her.”

“I’m reaching out to you in hopes to get it out in Lindsay as she knows people in town” who may know even a tiny detail that could help.

“Maybe they spoke to her or something. I know it’s a long shot but I will do whatever it takes to get my little sister home safe,” Amos says.

Richards is a mother of three.

OPP Const. Michelle Coulombe told CBC News that her vehicle “appears to have been stuck in a gravel pit.”

“So she would have walked out onto Highway 144 and walking along there. You don’t see that too often.”

If you have seen Connie please call the OPP at the number on the image.
