Earlier in the week the residence on 200th Street and 50th Avenue remained behind police tape for at least two days before RCMP confirmed the home would undergo a search.
Forensic teams could be seen at the property for much of Wednesday focusing on the yard, cutting back brush. Behind the foliage that covers much of the corner property specs of blue could be seen behind the chain-link fence and greenery, where investigators had constructed a blue tent.
A view from 200th Street showed an officer on the balcony of the home, more of the blue coloured covering set-up by forensic teams and sounds of them working in the yard.
Little information about the investigation is known at this time. Langley Advance Times reached out to IHIT for more information.
“It is a continuation from yesterday’s search,” said Sgt. David Lee when asked Thursday morning to provide an update on the investigation.
Onotera, 40, was last seen leaving her Langley City home on Saturday, Aug. 28. Since news of her disappearance broke the whereabouts of the mother and school librarian have gained widespread community concern.
This story will be updated should more information become available.
