The search for a missing Montreal North has intensified and police now fear for her life.
Gysleine Saimbo, 57, was last seen Saturday at about 7:30 a.m. in Montreal North.
She left home for what was supposed to be a brief outing, but she never came back.
Police K-9 units and firefighters were sweeping the shores of the Rivière des Prairies on Sunday, searching for the missing woman.
Saimbo did not take her medication before leaving home and she could be confused.
Saimbo only speaks Creole. She is five feet two inches tall. She was wearing a long, black winter coat with brown fur trim when she left home.
She was also wearing dark blue jeans and dark boots.
