UPDATE: Nanaimo RCMP say the 40-year-old man who had been reported missing earlier this month has been located safe and sound and his family have been notified.
PREVIOUSLY POSTED: Nanaimo RCMP are asking for help locating a missing man who may be riding his motorcycle somewhere on Vancouver Island.
Police issued a press release Friday asking for help finding Gordon Oper, 40, who was reported missing Wednesday and hasn’t been in contact with his family since Monday.
“Oper maintains regular contact with family and for him to stop all communication is out of character, and have caused them concern,” noted the RCMP press release.
Oper may be travelling on a black Harley Davidson motorcycle with a white pinstripe. Investigators have confirmed that he was at Stella Lake north of Campbell River earlier this week.
Oper is caucasian, 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, with a moustache and goatee and has a small tattoo under his left eye. He walks with a noticeable limp.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Nanaimo RCMP’s non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file No. 2020-13136.
