Investigators have called Nanaimo Search and Rescue to help with the investigation into the disappearance of Jason Burns, 42.
Burns was last seen May 4 leaving his assisted-living facility on Rosstown Road and has not been seen or heard from since.
“The officers involved in the investigation have thoroughly reviewed his movements prior to leaving the home and hope the search of this area by NSAR may provide some clues to his disappearance,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, in a press release.
Search and rescue members combed the area Tuesday and returned Wednesday to complete their search in a large wooded area near Burns’ home.
Anyone with information about Burns’s disappearance is asked to please call Const. Jean Gelderblom of the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
