Port Coquitlam REALTOR® Risa Bassetto was integral to finding a missing person earlier this month.

Risa was alerted through the Realty Watch program – a partnership between local police departments, the RCMP and more than 14,000 Realtors across the Lower Mainland.

“Risa was instrumental in finding this elderly person,” said Detective Constable Raymond Payette, Vancouver Police Department (VPD). “She and the Realty Watch program allowed us to find this senior safe.”

Risa was driving home when she saw an elderly person on the sidewalk. Gut instinct told her something wasn’t right. She checked the Realty Watch fan-out that was sent by VPD and discovered it was the same person.
