Missing Saanich woman’s body found near Malahat

Shawnigan RCMP says death not considered suspicious, coroner service investigating

The body of a Saanich woman missing since June 7 has been found, according to Shawnigan RCMP.

Saanich police originally sought public help to locate 33-year-old Jaime Traynor last seen by her family Saturday night around 10 p.m.

Her body was located by searchers late in the afternoon on June 8 near where her vehicle was found and has since been recovered.

Search and rescue teams scoured the area starting Sunday after Shawnigan RCMP found Traynor’s red Saturn sedan on June 7 around 2:30 a.m. on the Malahat.

Cowichan Search and Rescue was involved in the search over the weekend with many members putting many hours into the search, along with members from Ladysmith SAR and Juan de Fuca SAR, said Jamie Tudway-Cains, search manager for Cowichan SAR.

“Although the outcome was terribly unfortunate, we did manage to bring closure,” Tudway-Cains said. “Our condolences go out to the family and friends.”

RCMP say the cause of death is not considered suspicious. The BC Coroners Service is also investigating.

Anyone who needs help for depression or other mental health issues can call the provincial suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-suicide (1-800-784-2433), or visit crisislines.bc.ca to find local mental health and crisis resources.
