Missing man also wanted on Canada-wide warrant
The family of a 37-yearold New Brunswick man, Phillip Lee Lyons have reported him missing after an extended period without contact.
On May 26, Lyons, wanted Canada-wide for parole violation, was on day parole as a first time federal offender when he walked away from a halfway house in Kelowna, British Columbia.
A Canada-wide warrant was issued for the suspension of Lyons’ parole and he has been unlawfully at large since that time. Although Lyons is known to the Okanagan area he had recently expressed a desire to return to New Brunswick.
The halfway house is the last place where Lyons was confirmed to have been seen and he has not contacted family since before he left.
On October 3rd, 2012,Lyons was reported missing by his family.
It is unusual for Lyons to not have contact with his family, even when he knows he has outstanding warrants.
Lyons may still be in the Okanagan but if he travelled back to New Brunswick, police believe that he would most likely be in either Fredericton or Doaktown.
Lyons has a long and diverse criminal history dating back to when he was 19 years of age.
At the time of his disappearance, he was serving an eight-year sentence for Robbery, Possession of a Weapon Obtained by the Commission of an Offense, Theft Under $5000 and Fail to Attend Court.
