A search for Australian national Alison Raspa, missing since November 23rd in Whistler has been suspended.

RCMP say an extensive search effort has been underway for almost two weeks involving a number of agencies, including Whistler RCMP, Whistler Search and Rescue, Whistler Fire Rescue Service, RCMP Air Services, RCMP Underwater Recovery Team, as well as friends and family and so far the 25 year old has not been found.

Police say Raspa was last seen shortly before midnight leaving the Three Below Bar in Whistler Village, and believe she may have taken public transport to an area near Highway 99 and Lake Placid Road walking west toward Alpha Lake. At approximately 1:15 am the 25 year old text some of her friends to confirm she was lost.

A jacket, backpack and wallet belonging to Raspa was found near the Highway and Lake Placid Road by a member of the public, her cell phone was also located by another citizen in Alpha Lake Park. RCMP do not believe the items were discarded as a result of foul play.

In a statement police say that the search to date has been extensive and has circumnavigated the park, lakes, as well as the road, trails and parkades leaving Whistler Village to Alpha Lake Park. At this point, police say all available leads have been exhausted.

If you remember seeing Raspa on the evening of November 22nd or early morning hours of November 23rd you are asked to contact Whistler RCMP on 604 932?3044. She was last seen wearing a black jacket, white and black striped shirt and black pants. She also had a blue backpack.
