The Disappearance of Emma Fillipoff

26 year old Emma Fillipoff vanished from Victoria, BC on Nov 28, 2012 under circumstances as mysterious as they are heartbreaking.

In the days leading up to her disappearance Emma made a series of distressing phone calls to her mother and on the day of her disappearance seemed to be planning something. A 7/11 convenience store's surveillance footage from day of her disappearance show her acting unusually and making a series of out of character purchases. 

She was last seen by the Victoria police who were responding to a call from a concerned acquaintance of Emma's, reporting a women in distress.  After spending nearly 45 minutes speaking with her, they left her standing shoe less on a busy downtown intersection on a cold November night.  In a tragic twist, Emma's mother Shelley would arrive in Victoria to check on Emma's well being only three hours after Emma was last seen.
