The family of a Duncan man, who has been missing since Feb. 10, is offering a reward for information about his disappearance.
Family and friends have been searching for 47 year-old Everett Jones since he left his home in the Club Road area of Duncan and did not return.
“Mr. Jones is known in the commercial area of Duncan and his usual daily stops have been canvassed,” said Cpl. Krista Hobday, North Cowichan / Duncan RCMP media relations officer.
“North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP have checked and eliminated Island Hospitals and locations Mr. Jones is known to frequent.” And Cowichan Valley Search and Rescue have completed an exhaustive search of areas it is believed Jones may have been or might gravitate to.
Police are requesting the public’s assistance in locating Jones as he is of diminished mental capacity and at a high risk of losing his way.
“This is out of character for Mr. Jones and the recent inclement weather increases the urgency of the search”, added Hobday.
Jones is described as First Nations with short dark hair, eye glasses, no teeth, clean shaven, and approximately 178cm (5’10”) and 75kg (161lbs). He was wearing a camouflage jacket and beige trousers.
Contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) if you have any information regarding Mr. Jones’ whereabouts.
