The next morning, Alison’s phone was found about 7km away at Alpha Lake Park in Creekside Village. A day later, her jacket, wallet, and backpack were found in the same area by a local resident. Royal Canadian Mounted Police divers searched the lake and surrounding areas, but their efforts turned up nothing.

Shortly after 1am on the night that she vanished, many of Alison’s friends received desperate text messages from her. The messages, that were sent from her phone, stated that she was lost. If you have any information that could help investigators, please contact the Whistler Royal Canadian Mountain Police. We are hoping for the best out of this scary situation.

“She spoke with a friend in the Village Stroll area and later investigators believe Ms Raspa may have taken public transport to an area near Highway 99 and Lake Placid Road (before) walking west toward Alpha Lake,” stated RCMP Whistler Staff Sergeant Paul Hayes.
