“It’s unusual for Robert not to have made contact with anyone since his departure from Kamloops,” said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson.

Cpl. Evelyn says pictures of Robert and his vehicle are being released in the hopes someone has seen him.

He is described as a Caucasian man who stands at 5’10” and weighs about 140 pounds and has grey hair and blue eyes.

His vehicle is a grey 2000 Dodge ram 3500 with a camper on top with the BC licence plate G5 7507.
