RCMP in North Van looking for suspicious male
RCMP in North Vancouver is asking for public assistance in locating a man acting strangely in Lynn Canyon Park on (Saturday) November 8, 2014 at 2:57 p.m.
North Vancouver RCMP responded to a report of a bare foot male acting strangely in Lynn Canyon Park.
The male was observed by witnesses climbing next to the waterfall upstream from the Suspension Bridge. He was observed lying down on a small ledge adjacent to the 90 foot waterfall.
The male was described as Caucasian, wearing red and black pajama-like pants, a brown and black jacket, a black, grey and white toque and was bare foot.
Upon arrival of police, the male had vanished from the scene raising concerns that he had fallen into the creek. A search of the scene by RCMP and North Shore Search and Rescue failed to locate the male.
The Coast Guard searched the outlet of Lynn Creek the following day and did not locate the male.
While it is possible the male departed the park safely, the RCMP is concerned the male may have fallen into Lynn Creek,” Cpl Tupper of the North Vancouver RCMP.
The RCMP only seeks to check the male’s well being and is not investigating him for any criminal offence.
A photograph of the male taken by witnesses is being released to the public in the hopes of identifying him.
Please contact Cpl. Sue Tupper at 604-969-7568 if you have any information that can assist in this investigation.
