Ewin is described as white, 5’7″ tall and a heavy build. She has blue eyes and blonde hair dyed with pink and green streaks.

During her last sighting, she was seen wearing a pink jacket, a yellow shirt, yoga pants, and runners.

The VPD have explained that Ewin is capable of walking long distances and is familiar with the public transit system. In the past, she’s been located in the Downtown Eastside and in nearby cities.

While Ewin may appear confused, she’s also unlikely to ask for assistance, says police.
