A different twist on a wanted man. The New Brunswick mother of parole violator Phillip Lee LYONS has sent a plea for help to the people of the Kelowna area for information on her missing son.

She readily admits he has had trouble with the law, but claims he has always kept in touch with her and his family, no matter what the circumstance. She is convinced something has happened to him and would like some peace of mind. If you know of Lyon’s whereabouts, or any information on his disappearance, please contact local police or Crime Stoppers.

A collector 1969 yellow Chevy shortbox pickup (VIN CE149Z867707) was stolen from a complex at 773 Glenmore Road North on December 16, 2012.
