http://www.canada.com/news/Brunswick...198/story.htmlMONCTON, N.B. - Police in New Brunswick are asking for the public's help in the search for two people known to each other and have gone missing from the Moncton area.
Sabrina Patterson of Riverview was last seen Friday by friends at the Coliseum in Moncton and the 25-year-old woman's car was discovered in the parking lot of the Riverview Mall.
Fred Prosser of Shenstone has been missing since Monday when the 31-year-old was last seen by friends at his home near Salisbury.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Gary Cameron said the two are known to each other but didn't elaborate, adding that they don't know if there is a connection between their disappearances.
"They are two missing person's cases, however the investigation is joint because there may be a link in their disappearances," Cameron said.
"We can't rule out any possibilities but at this point the important thing is to find both of the missing persons safely and we're asking the public's assistance in this endeavour."
He said the RCMP is looking for anyone who may have a recent photo or video of Prosser's truck, which is believed to be a 2004 grey Chevrolet pickup with the New Brunswick licence plate COT 348.
Officers say the number 31 is also on the truck, believed to be on the rear driver's side window.
Patterson is approximately five feet four inches tall, approximately 180 pounds, has brown eyes and shoulder-length brown hair.
