Authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding a 41-year-old Quebec woman who left on vacation to Mexico last month and never returned home.

Quebec provincial police say Christine St-Onge — who is from the Montreal suburb of Laval — travelled to Los Cabos, Mexico, on November 29 with a male friend. They were supposed to return to Canada on December 6.

The friend arrived home a day early and the following day he died by suicide, police spokesman Sgt. Stephane Tremblay says.

St-Onge’s family have not heard from her since December 4, and she never flew back to Canada.

Mexican authorities and the RCMP are working with provincial police on the investigation.
