RCMP reports man missing in Nelson area

John Nichols was last seen on May 8 in Beasley.

On Monday,  RCMP received a report of a missing person, John Nichols, age 21.  Nichols  arrived at a residence on Awesome View Rd in Beasley on Tuesday May 5th to drop a friend off and decided to stay for a few days himself.  The last time he was seen was on the morning of May 8.

Friends believe Nichols must have left on foot because his bike and personal belongings were all left behind in his vehicle.  He  did not say anything about leaving or going anywhere, so his direction of travel is unknown.

Nichols has light brown hair and beard, blue eyes, is 165 centimetres tall, weighs 62 kilograms, and is from Australia.  His father has been advised of the situation and is being kept updated by RCMP.

Nelson Search and Rescue searched the wooded area around the residence yesterday. The search was called off at dark and is scheduled to resume this morning.  The RCMP helicopter  will attend for an aerial search.

If anyone has any information about the whereabouts of John Nichols  they are asked to call Nelson RCMP immediately at 250-352-2156.
