UPDATE: Lisa Roberts received a text from her sister and briefly spoke to her on the phone. Her sister spent two nights in the woods.

The sister of a Halifax politician has gone missing in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley.

Her sister, 49, was last seen on March 5 in Wolfville around 10 a.m.

Nova Scotia RCMP describes her as a white, 5'7" woman. She was last seen wearing a winter hat, a blue jacket that is the liner of a winter coat, pants and Columbia brand hiking boots.

She is known to hike and snowshoe. She is the sister of Nova Scotia New Democratic Party MLA for Halifax-Needham Lisa Roberts.

"It’s urgent that we find her car — a brown Toyota Prius — that’s likely at some trailhead (formal or informal) in the Annapolis Valley," Lisa Roberts shared on Twitter. "She left Wolfville at 10 a.m. Friday intending to be back for a 5 p.m. shift at l’Arche Homefires."

Lisa's partner has also made a spreadsheet to track where people are searching. In a tweet, she said any waterfall trailhead within two hours of Wolfville — especially in the Windsor-area — are important areas to search.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Roberts' sister is asked to contact Kings District RCMP at 902-679-5555. Should you wish to remain anonymous call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at, or use the P3 Tips App.
