MONTREAL – The family of a Quebec woman who was travelling in Burkina Faso say they’re worried she and her travel companion have gone missing.

Edith Blais’ sister says the 34-year-old Sherbrooke resident and her Italian friend Luca Tacchetto were travelling in the West African nation when they abruptly stopped communicating with their families around Dec. 15.

Melanie Bergeron Blais says the pair were last seen in the city of Bobo-Dioulasso, in the country”s southwest, and planned to eventually make their way to Togo, but there is no indication they applied for visa gold crossed the border.

She says there has been no financial activity in her sister’s bank account and it’s unusual for her to be out of touch with her family for more than a few days.

Global Affairs Canada says consular officials are reaching out to local authorities in Burkina Faso to follow up on reports of a missing Canadian.

The government of Canada’s website recommends avoiding all non-essential travel to the country due to the threat of terrorism.
