Local police are asking the public’s assistance in locating Everett Jones.
Jones, 47, left his home in the Club Road area of Duncan on Feb. 10 at approximately 11 a.m. without indicating where he was going, and hasn’t been seen since.
Family and friends have been looking for him, but have not turned up any clues as to his whereabouts.
Jones is known in the commercial area of Duncan and his usual daily stops have been canvassed.
North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP have checked and eliminated Island hospitals and locations Jones is known to frequent.
Police are asking for help in locating Jones as he is of diminished mental capacity.
Members of the Cowichan Valley Search and Rescue team have been activated, and will be hitting the ground in the Duncan area, focusing on trails and bushes.
“This is out of character for Mr. Jones, and the recent inclement weather increases the urgency of the search,” said Cpl. Krista Hobday.
Jones is a First Nations man with short dark hair, eye glasses, no teeth and is clean shaven.
He is approximately 5’10” and 170 pounds and was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket and beige trousers.
Please contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 if you have any information regarding his whereabouts.
