Police search for missing Cowichan man

North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are asking for the public’s help in finding a missing 75-year-old man.

Harvey Sloan, who has not been seen since June 18, suffers from medical conditions that require medication and it is unknown if he has taken the medication with him.

Sloan left his residence, leaving a note for his landlord saying he wanted to be by himself, Cpl. Krista Hobday said in a news release.

When he had not returned by Monday, June 23, his landlord called police.

RCMP have checked local Island hospitals, hotels and the places Sloan is known to frequent.

“This is not typical behaviour for Mr. Sloan,” Hobday said.

Sloan is Caucasian, 5 foot 11 inches tall (180 cm) and 160 pounds (73 kg). He has brown eyes with grey hair and is missing his front teeth.

He may be wearing jeans, a button down western shirt with a T-shirt underneath and a black cowboy hat.

If you have any information about Sloan, contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
