Canadian Woman Out For A Morning Run With Her Dog Is Kidnapped In Grenada
RESEARCH SCIENTIST: Linnea Veinotte
ST. GEORGE’S – Police in the Caribbean country of Grenada are searching for 36-year-old Linnea Veinotte, who they believe was taken while out for a run Sunday morning.
According to a social media post, Veinotte was last seen near her home in the southern tip of Grenada around 8 a.m. on December 6.
Her husband, Matt Veinotte, says she was out for a run with their dog near their family home. He believes both his wife and the dog were struck by a vehicle.
The dog was found badly injured by the side of the road, and the family is now concerned Veinotte was taken.
The family believes the vehicle was a navy blue or dark grey Suzuki Vitra or Excudo, now with damage to the front, right side. They also believe the driver incurred a flat tire in the incident, and would have had to change it somewhere nearby.
Veinotte’s husband is offering a $100,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the whereabouts of his wife.
Veinotte was born in New Denmark, New Brunswick and has a primary residence in Glen Haven, Nova Scotia. She moved to the southern part of Grenada with her young family this summer, and works at St. George’s University.
Some family members from the Maritimes are traveling to Grenada to help in the search.
