– Volunteers are organizing a search party on Wednesday evening at 6pm starting at the RONA parking lot on Hazeldean Road. Searchers will head out in groups of two. For more info call 613-581-6297.

Neighbours report that police were called to help in a similar situation last April when the woman went missing.

– The Ottawa Citizen reports:

Nelliya Karbisheva, who police say has a form of dementia, was reported seen around 10:30 p.m. Sunday leaving the Queensway Carleton Hospital on foot, walking toward Baseline Road.

The hospital is about 10 kilometres from Stittsville, where she lives. 

According to Cara Salci, a spokeswoman for the hospital, Karbisheva was not a patient at the hospital. She was there for reasons other than treatment. Hospital staff are working with Ottawa police to help provide any information they can about the visitor, including providing security footage of her while she was at the hospital. Salci also said an email has been circulated to hospital staff, alerting them to be on the lookout in case Karbisheva returns at some point.

UPDATE (Tuesday morning): Police continue to search in Stittsville for Nelliya Karbisheva, who was last seen within the 300 block of Horseshoe Crescent in Jackson Trails on Sunday around noon. A police search team is covering several areas near Jackson Trails including the wooded area north of the community, and neighbourhoods along Hazeldean Road. Anyone with information is asked to contact the on Ottawa Police Services Missing Person Section at 613-236-1222 (3726) or the Duty Patrol Staff Sergeant’s Desk at 613-236-1222 (2912).

UPDATE (Monday evening): Police are searching backyards and public areas in Jackson Trails this evening.

CFRA reports:

Police say she left her home with the dog around noon Sunday and ended up at the Queensway Carleton hospital at around 10:30 p.m. the same day.

Staff Sgt. Glenn Wasson tells CTV Ottawa they believe she walked the 12 kilometre distance herself.

“Often times people set out and from what I understand she’s an avid walker,” he says. “It is far, absolutely, but it’s not unreasonable to think she may have travelled that far by foot.”

Sgt. Wasson says Karbisheva suffers from dementia and there are concerns for her safety.

“As I understand it, she does have a jacket on. She is an avid walker so I believe she is physically fit under normal circumstances,” she says. “However after 24 hours, and it wasn’t a particularly warm night . . . our concerns would heighten.”

UPDATE: Ms. Karbisheva was last seen at approx 10:30pm Sunday leaving the Queensway Carleton Hospital on foot walking towards Baseline Road.

UPDATE: Ottawa Police continue to search for the missing elderly female, Ms Karbisheva, who was walking her dog at the time she went missing. The small white poodle she was walking is shown in the pictures appended below.

PHOTOS: Magical mystery walk through Bell Park

“I have been walking in Bell Park admiring the trilliums and ferns but this weekend I discovered an added attraction,” writes Janice Blain, who sent along the photos you see on this page.

“Someone has, or some people have, turned the woodland walk into a magical mystery tour with pretty painted stones placed along the paths.  I imagine they are the work of at least two children and would like to thank them for sharing their artwork and adding such a lovely surprise to my walks.” Continue reading

Tree cutting allowed east of Echowoods, as long as they’re skinny trees

Here’s a update from Councillor Shad Qadri after recent resident inquiries about why trees are being cut down on land east of Lloydalex/Echowoods and north of Jackson Trails and the new Potter’s Key subdivision. (The land doesn’t have a municipal address, and is not subject to any active development applications.) Qadri says the owners of the property are not in violation of the Urban Tree Conservation By-law as long as trees being removed do not have a diameter of 10cm or more.

Residents have inquired about tree cutting on this piece of land east of Lloydalex Crescent. Map via Councillor Shad Qadri.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for a very rainy Jane’s Walk on Stittsville Main Street aka UmbrellaFest 2017.  Lots of optimism and potential about the future of the neighbourhood! Jane Jacobs wrote “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” over half a century ago, and it is incredible how relevant her ideas are today when we’re talking about how to create healthy, sustainable, people-centred neighbourhoods. -GG.
