Community Comes Together to Search for Missing Person

This week, there was an air of tragedy as an elderly Stittsville resident was missing for multiple days.


Throughout the week, many residents shared this messaging and came together to look for her. On Thursday afternoon, however, Nelliya Karbisheva’s body was found with her loyal white poodle still beside her.


This is no doubt a difficult time for Mrs. Karbisheva’s family and loved ones and I would like to send my sincere condolences to all those who knew her.


I would also like to thank Ottawa Police, Paramedics, and Emergency Services staff involved with the search as well as all residents who shared their evenings to help look for her, particularly Chelsea Dale and her family who helped to organize a search party of approximately 60 people who concentrated their efforts in the Fairwinds, Fringewood North and Bryanston Gate communities on Wednesday Night.


I was humbled to see our community once again come together as a unit to help out.


May our thoughts be with Nelliya and her family at this time.
