Victoria, BC – VicPD Historical Case Review Unit (HCRU) investigators have released previously unshared photos of missing Esquimalt Indigenous woman Belinda Cameron and her daughters as we mark the 17th anniversary of Belinda’s disappearance.

Belinda Cameron is confirmed to have been last seen on May 11th, 2005. Belinda was last seen at Esquimalt’s Shoppers Drug Mart in the 800-block of Esquimalt Road that day. Belinda was reported missing nearly a month later, on June 4th, 2005. Officers conducted an extensive investigation and a series of searches for Belinda. She has not been found.

Belinda’s disappearance is considered suspicious and investigators believe that Belinda was the victim of foul play. Her disappearance continues to be investigated as a homicide.

At the time of her disappearance, Belinda was a 42-year-old Indigenous woman who stood five feet, eight inches tall with a medium to large build, and weighed approximately 170 pounds. Belinda had long, dark brown hair that she wore parted in the middle, and dark brown eyes. She wore silver-framed glasses.

Belinda is mom to two young women, now grown, who were young girls at the time of her disappearance.
