O'Rielly Family Holds News Conference
It will be two weeks tomorrow since Donna O'Rielly left her job at a New Brunswick shopping mall, and disappeared from her closest family and friends. Her family believes she was abducted in the parking lot. They have offered a $25-thousand reward as a final effort in asking the public, or even the person responsible to come forward with information. RCMP continue to treat her disappearance as a missing persons file. O'Rielly's daughter, Karen Streek, says it's hard for the family to remain optimistic.The 54-year old O'Rielly lived in this province before moving to New Brunswick.
Meanwhile RCMP in Moncton have released two still images from mall surveillance video the night she vanished. Police say the two images show a man and a woman separately at the rear entrance to the mall near the food court at different times. They believe the individuals could have been in the parking lot at the same time O'Rielly was leaving work from the south entrance on February 26th. RCMP hope releasing the images will identify these people who may offer more information that could help the case. They continue to treat O'Rielly's disappearance as a missing persons file, but her family insists she was abducted. O'Rielly lived in Isle aux Morts and Gander before moving to New Brunswick. The last time O'Rielly was seen was on surveillance video released by police showing her leaving the mall that night.
