Reginald Onotera ‘identified by only his first name’ is the husband of the missing from Langley BC Canada, Naomi Onotera. Naomi who is a 40-year-old mother was last seen by her husband leaving their residence in Langley, on Saturday, August 28.
Naomi and Reginald (husband) met online but he currently claims to not have any social media accounts. That does not negate the fact that he was on social media in the past. The husband wasn’t the one who called the cops to report her missing, it was her friend who did. She was supposed to meet the friend for brunch but never showed, the friend called her (Naomi’s) mother who said she hadn’t talked to her all day and realized she was missing.
Naomi Onotera worked as a teacher-librarian in an Elementary Shcool
Onotera workes as a teacher-librarian at Surrey’s Katzie Elementary and was looking forward to heading back to school before she went missing. Onotera was dedicated to her job, and her sister, Kirsten Kerr, says she knows the absence was deeply felt as kids headed back to class Tuesday.
“She’s one of the teacher-librarians there and so she sees a lot of the kids in the school, I’m sure they’re missing her. She loves teaching.”
For Onotera’s family, the shock is almost overwhelming — but they have fierce hope that she will be found safe. “It’s been surreal, and our whole family’s worst nightmare. We never expected anything like this to ever happen. We just miss her a lot. We just want to see her again, we want to have holidays with her, we want to have summers with her,” Kerr said.
When was she last seen?
Onotera was last seen leaving her home near 200 Street and 50 Avenue in Langley on Aug 28. Police have appealed to people who live in the area, or who were driving through for any security or dashcam footage captured between 6 p.m. on Aug. 28 and 7 a.m. on Aug. 29.
It is believed Naomi was wearing black, stretchy pants that had a slight flair at the bottom and a black t-shirt. The photograph included in this release shows Naomi wearing these clothes as per the Langley RCMP detachment Facebook post.
Her case has been taken over by the Langley Serious crimes investigators and a dedicated tip line has been set up for anyone who has information about Onotera’s disappearance, the number is 604-532-3398. Anyone with information “requiring an immediate response” is asked to call the non-emergency line at 604-532-3200.
