It’s been over two weeks since Sharon “Gayle” Dawson left her home in Qualicum Beach. Ms Dawson left her home on December 25th , 2010 and was seen at the World Parrot Refuge near Coombs BC on December 28th 2010. Ms Dawson has not been in contact with any family since she left. It is very uncharacteristic for Ms Dawson not to at least call her brother who lives in Alberta. Her family are very concerned, one family member stated, “ We all feel so helpless and would just like to know where she is.” Ms Dawson has family right across Canada.
