In a statement released Wednesday, Sgt. Dan Markevich of the Nelson Police Department said it’s not clear what Greyeyes was wearing the last day he was seen, but he may have been wearing a black hoodie and hiking boots while carrying a black backpack.

“Mr. Greyeyes left behind all of his personal belongings and his disappearance is out of character for him,” said Markevich. “He spent a lot of time around the Nelson area walking in the downtown core or on the nearby trails.

“The Nelson Police Department has worked closely with Mr. Greyeyes’ family over the past three years and encourages anyone who hasn’t spoken to police to come forward as even a small amount of information may be useful.”

Nelson police can be reached at 250-354-3919.
