Police search for missing Crofton man

The Nanaimo RCMP wants the public’s assistance locating 42-year-old Jason Radmacher, of Crofton, reported missing last Wednesday.

Radmacher is the manager of King Arthur’s Court, located at 564 Fifth St. in Nanaimo, and was last seen at approximately 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, walking toward the University Village Mall. Radmacher did not return to work all day Tuesday which is out of character for him. He also did not return at the end of the day to his home in Crofton, which again is out of character.

Police have determined that Radmacher was a foot passenger on the 10:30 a.m. sailing Jan. 13 from Departure Bay to Horseshoe Bay. Security video at the Horseshoe Bay terminal shows Radmacher leaving from the foot-passenger exit after the ferry arrived at 12:15 p.m. Radmacher does not have drug or alcohol issues and there were no presenting medical conditions. He has limited friends or associates since moving from Prince George to Nanaimo in October of 2014. Radmacher does have access to a bank account however investigators have not been able to determine if he has accessed the account within the past several days.

"His friends and associates are extremely worried, as his sudden and unannounced departure is clearly out-of-character for him," Nanaimo RCMP Const. Gary O’Brien said in a statement. "All they want to know is that he is in good health and for reasons known only to him, has decided to move on."

Radmacher is a white man, five foot seven and 130 pounds. He has dirty blond hair worn to his shoulders and a scruffy beard. He was last seen wearing a jean jacket with a grey hoodie underneath and blue jeans.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
