RCMP seeks dash cam footage in search for former Cowichan Capitals player

Geoffrey Irwin, 35, was last seen on Sept. 27

West Shore RCMP is asking for tips to help find a former Cowichan Capitals player who has been missing since Sept. 27.

Geoffrey Irwin, 35, was last seen at the Royal Bank in Langford, 2945 Jacklin Rd. He’s known to travel between the West Shore and the Lower Mainland.

Irwin, who lives in Colwood, started his junior hockey career with the Caps in 2001-02 and played 75 games with the team over three seasons before he went on to play for the Victoria Salsa, Prince George Spruce Kings and Burnaby Express. That was followed by a collegiate and pro career in the U.S. and Australia that lasted until 2016.

Police say an ongoing investigation into Irwin’s disappearance indicates he travelled from the West Shore to the Park Royal Mall sometime between Sept. 27 and Sept. 29.

RCMP have followed up on several leads but the Colwood man is still missing and police are concerned for his well being.

Irwin drives a 2017 black Ford Escape with the license plate DM928F. He is described as Caucasian man with blonde hair and blue eyes, standing about 6’ and weighing 196 pounds with a medium build.

When he was last seen, Irwin was wearing a grey zip-up hoodie, a black T-shirt and black shorts. He was carrying a backpack.

Police ask anyone with dash camera footage, who may have been on BC Ferries or was driving in the area of Park Royal Mall between Sept. 27 and Sept. 29 to review their surveillance. Anyone who spots Irwin or his vehicle is asked to call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264. To report information anonymously, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
