Surrey RCMP are asking for the public’s help locating a woman who was last seen early Thursday morning in South Surrey.

A news release issued just after noon on Thursday describes Julia Yeates as a five-foot-two, 31-year-old Caucasian woman, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Weighing 119 lbs, she was last seen around 3:30 a.m. July 19 in the 13800-block of 17 Avenue, wearing a grey hoodie and blue jeans.
