Search underway for missing 63-year-old Cowichan Valley man

Search and rescue volunteers were stopping cars at the intersection of Barnjum, Menzies and Gibbins Roads Thursday morning

Search and rescue volunteers were stopping cars at the intersection of Barnjum, Menzies and Gibbins Roads Thursday morning, asking them to keep an eye out for Danny Joseph, who went missing Wednesday night.

Joseph, 63, who is described as  First Nations, 178 cm (five-foot-10) tall, balding with black hair, and having missing teeth and an underbite, was dressed in a black T-shirt, black pants and grey running shoes, when he left his home on foot about 8 p.m.

SAR volunteers urged anyone who sees him to call 9-1-1 and notify police.

According to Cpl. Krista Hobday, media relations officer for North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP, “Joseph was last seen walking into the woods near the 4300 block of Webdon Road last night at approximately 8 p.m. There is no indication of where Mr. Joseph may be headed. North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP have checked and eliminated Island hospitals and commercial businesses where Mr. Joseph may have gone.

“The police have engaged the Police Service Dog but the team was not able to locate a track. It is believed Mr. Joseph may have become disoriented. He does have a medical condition that requires daily medication that he has left at home,” she said.

Contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 if you have any information regarding Joseph’s whereabouts.
