There is a gap of approximately 14 hours from the time she was last seen and when her body was discovered.  The RCMP is continuing to seek the public’s assistance to try to determine how Alicia Boone arrived on the Killarney Road, and who she may have been with in the 14 hours preceding her death.

Alicia Boone was last seen wearing blue jeans, a pink hoodie undershirt, and a black hoodie with "Aero 87" written in white letters on the front. The hoodie was black on the outside and contained black/white stripes on the inside. She was approximately 5'6" tall, and weighed approximately 130 lbs.  She had blonde hair and blue eyes.
