A 68-year-old man is still missing from Prince George after RCMP reported Aug. 30 he hadn’t been seen for several days.

It said Waite enjoys Prince George locations including Cottonwood Island Park, Ginters Field (near 18th Avenue and Foothills Boulevard), and Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park. He also frequents the bus stop near the corner of 10th Avenue and Freeman Street.

“Although we have not been able to obtain a description of his bicycle, it is believed he may have taken it with him,” said the release.

RCMP say foul play is not suspected but they are concerned for Waite’s health.

The Prince George RCMP are asking everyone that frequents the outdoors to please report anything suspicious including found clothing and bikes.
