The Nanaimo RCMP said it has found a man who earlier was believed to have a gun and might be at risk to himself.
Police issued a press release Friday at noon advising that it is “currently searching several locations throughout Nanaimo,” looking for a “distraught” 58-year-old man who may be in possession of a firearm.
A subsequent news release Friday afternoon advised the man had been located at a south Nanaimo home and his firearm was taken by police for safekeeping. The man was taken to hospital for assessment.
No charges are expected to be laid.
