Keremeos RCMP are trying to find a man who has been missing for over a month and may have last been in the Okanagan.
Michael Prentice, 35, was reported missing by his family on August 28, 2012, but has not been seen or heard from since July 21.
Cst. Lesley Smith says Prentice was scheduled to meet his brother in Vernon approximately four weeks ago, but failed to meet up with him.
The family's last contact with Prentice came July 21, when he sent a text message to friends and family indicating that he was hitchhiking to Vernon from Cawston to look for work.
He was last seen in Cawston and it is unknown whether or not he ever made it to Vernon. There is concern for his well being, as he is reported to live a "high-risk" lifestyle.
The RCMP are hoping someone may have seen Prentice over the summer months in the Okanagan as he may have been looking for labor work in the area.
Michael Prentice is described as;
- Caucasian male
- 5' 11" Tall, 205 lbs
- Light Brown hair
- Brown Eyes
If you have any information as to his whereabouts please contact your nearest RCMP detachment or call the Keremeos RCMP at 250-499-5511.
If you would like to remain anonymous please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit their website.
