She didn’t show up for work the next day and wasn’t in contact with any of her friends and family, which police say is very out of character.

On Monday, Ridge Meadows RCMP located surveillance footage of Jadidian walking through a parking lot around 240th and Dewdney Trunk road. Her vehicle, a white Mazda CX-5, was also located, however, police weren’t able to find her.
