A missing 55-year-old Nakusp man could be somewhere in the Nelson area, if the location of his cell phone is any indication.

Steven Schroff has been missing since Friday morning. Nakusp RCMP asked his mobile provider to “ping” his cell phone, which allows them to see what cell tower the device is closest to. It turned up a location near Nelson.

According to the police report, Schroff told his family he was going to Spokane. He left his home at 11 a.m. on Friday, but never arrived at his destination. US Border Services confirmed he never crossed the border.

Schroff was driving a brown 2006 Toyota Tacoma pick-up truck (BC licence plate CH4547). He is described as 5-foot-10l and about 190 pounds.

Nakusp RCMP request that anyone who spots Schroff or his vehicle contact them at 250-265-3677.
