Burnaby RCMP are asking for the public’s help in finding a missing 22-year-old woman, Kayla Anne Koks.

Koks has been missing since May 19 when she was an in-patient at Burnaby Hospital. She left the hospital wearing only a hospital gown, say Burnaby RCMP.

From the way she left, she may have injured herself from broken glass or from jumping three storeys to the ground.

Koks functions at the level of a 14-year-old and may be engaged in prostitution to support addictions. Police consider her to be a "high risk missing" case due to her mental age, high risk lifestyle and addictions.

She is described as being a First Nations woman, five-foot-four and weighing 141 pounds. It is possible that she has since changed her clothes.

On May 23, she was spotted at the Surrey Central SkyTrain Station and Bus Loop,  an area she is known to frequent as transit is her primary mode of transportation. It is also possible she has travelled to Victoria.

Burnaby RCMP are concerned for her safety. Anyone who may have seen her, or knows where she might be, is asked to contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604- 294-7922  or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
