Creepy Notes Posted On Campbell River Trail Spark RCMP Warning

Notes that appear to be from a secret admirer and posted along a Campbell River trail have prompted B.C. RCMP to issue a warning.

Posted to imgur two weeks ago, the notes seem to be written by a man who is infatuated with a woman he sees walking her dogs along the Beaver Lodge trails.

"I see you nearly every lunch hour of mine in here," says one long, typewritten note. "Everytime [sic] that I see you coming, I want to approach you."

The author writes about being shy and watching the woman from afar, though he almost came close to saying hello one day: "I was too close and you could smell my cologne. I was close enough to hear you ask your friend if she smelt cologne, and I watched you stop and smell the air."

Campbell River RCMP was alerted to the notes earlier this month, according to a press release.

Police found the woman involved and spoke to her, but they're still looking for the note writer, reported The Courier-Islander.

RCMP Sgt. Troy Beauregard told CBC that while the notes were not threatening, the wording was causing concern.

“We just want people to be vigilant on the trails," he said. "Beware of your personal safety.”

The author also noted: "You seem to realize when you're being watched, but perhaps your very large, aggressive looking dogs, plus the bear spray and the concealed knife I know that you carry, give you a sense of security."
