Tatyanna Harrison, age 20, was in regular contact with her family until the end of March 2022, when she last texted her mother from a new phone number from somewhere in the Downtown Eastside.
She was reported missing May 3, police have been investigating her disappearance, but still have no leads on her whereabouts.
She had previously been living in Surrey until around Feb. 3 when she spoke with Surrey RCMP officers in the area of King George Boulevard and Bolivar Road, and told them she had nowhere to stay, according to the police.
Harrison stayed at a shelter at 875 Terminal Avenue in Vancouver, from Feb. 9 to Feb. 22, where she was often seen with a man.
She visited an RBC bank at Main and East Hastings Street on March 23 to report a lost bank card.
On March 24 Tatyanna Harrison sent her mother a text message from a new phone number.
According to police, since the day of that text, there have been numerous sightings of the young woman in Vancouver, including on April 7 at Robson Park, and on April 22 at the Grand Union Pub near Abbott and West Hastings Street.
However, she never arrived to collect her social assistance cheque at the end of April, and her current whereabouts remain unknown.
According to Vancouver police it is out of character for Tatyanna to have gone so long without speaking to her friends and family.
She is described as a 20-year-old Indigenous woman, who stands 5’1, has brown eyes, and a slim build.
The last time she was seen she had medium-length auburn hair, although her hairstyle and colour may have changed. She often wears prescription glasses and baggy clothes.
