A 25-year-old Castlegar man has been reported missing and RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in locating him.

Lyle Lamont was last seen Sunday, July 14, at 5:30 a.m.

According to a police report, he left his family home saying he was going for a walk, and never returned. Friends and family have been out looking for him, with the help of Castlegar Search and Rescue, but at the time this story was published there had been no sign of him.

Lamont is about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, with short blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue striped hoodie and blue jeans.
