A Red Deer woman is one of several Canadians in Nepal whose is still missing after Saturday’s earthquake struck the south Asian country.

Beverly Williams, 60, was on a seven-day tour with about 10 people hiking to Langtang National Park in the Himalayan foothills when the devastating earthquake hit.

Her partner Michael Dawe, who is running as a Liberal candidate for Red Deer North in next week’s provincial election, said there has been no word so far from anyone regarding Williams location or condition.

“We’re hoping she’s in a tent and that they have water and rations for them,” Dawe said on Monday.

“They are just out there somewhere. We have no idea where they are. We hope they’re okay. But I guess you just don’t know until you get that actual confirmation.”

The last time he talked to Williams was April 22, the night before she left Kathmandu on her hiking tour.
