O’Shaughnessy was reported missing on Oct. 8.

It is out of character for him to be out of contact for so long, police added, but said foul play is not suspected.

O’Shaughnessy also missed an appointment, which is unusual for him.

Mounties said they are concerned for his health and wellbeing.

He is described as:

  • White

  • 53

  • 6ft tall

  • 194lbs

  • Grey hair

  • Brown eyes

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a beige jacket and a dark baseball cap.

Anyone with information is urged to call the police.
