Police in Grenada say they have a significant lead in the case of a missing woman from New Brunswick, who disappeared a few days ago on the small Caribbean island.

Linnea Veinotte, a 36-year-old mother of two, was reported missing Sunday morning after going out for a jog with her dog in St. George’s, the capital of Grenada.

Veinotte’s dog was found lying on the side of the road after being struck by a car. Earlier this week, police said they believe Veinotte was taken by someone driving a dark-coloured vehicle.

On Thursday, investigators located the vehicle believed to be connected to the case and are now looking for a “male person of interest,” CTV Atlantic’s Kayla Hounsell reported.

The vehicle, a damaged, dark grey Suzuki Escudo, was found at a residence in the south end of the island.

The vehicle’s owner, who also owns the residence where it was found, is co-operating with police. Investigators don’t believe the owner was driving the Suzuki at the time of Veinotte’s disappearance, but also say that the vehicle was not stolen.

Veinotte, who works at St. George’s University, was born in New Brunswick and has a primary residence in Nova Scotia. She’s been living in Grenada with her husband and their two young children since July.

Veinotte’s husband, Matt, told CTV Atlantic that the family is thrilled with the latest development in the investigation and hopes it’s a step toward bringing his wife home.
