Delores Brown search ramps up on Penelakut Island, B.C.
A search for a missing 18-year-old woman is ramping up on a small island just east of Ladysmith, B.C.
Island District RCMP Cpl. Darren Lagan says additional resources from Vancouver Island's integrated major crime unit are being sent to Penelakut Island, south of Thetis Island, in the Gulf Island chain.
Delores Brown was last seen on the island, formerly known as Kuper Island, on July 27 and was reported missing two days later.
