A 26-year-old Cowichan Tribes man walked away from his home on Aug. 21 and there hasn’t been a confirmed sighting of him since.
Ian Preston Douglas Henry left his Tzouhalem Road-area home without indicating where he might be going, said an RCMP news release issued Aug. 28.
“There have been a few reported possible sightings of Mr. Henry in the McAdam Park and Duncan Mall areas around Aug. 25, but police were unable to confirm these,” said Cpl. Dave Ryan of North Cowichan/Duncan’s First Nations Policing unit.
Henry’s family, friends and members of the Cowichan Tribes community have been looking for him but have yet to find any leads.
An avid cyclist, Henry has been known to go on long bike rides but his family has always been contacted by friends or community members to say they have seen him and he is well.
That hasn’t happened this time.
The media release issued by North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday said police have checked Island hospitals and locations Henry is known to frequent but he hasn’t been located. He has a medical condition requiring medication but nobody knows if he’s got it with him.
Be on the lookout for a 26-year-old First Nations male about 5-foot-10 and weighing between 160 and 180 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a dark shirt and dark shorts.
Those with information as to his whereabouts, or who have seen him recently are encouraged to contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
