An abandoned vehicle located near Fort St. James has led to an investigation into a missing Prince George man.

Gary Allan Wain, a 61-year-old Prince George resident is believed to have been missing for at least two weeks.

On Feb. 1 the Prince George RCMP received a request from Fort St. James RCMP to attempt to locate the owner of an abandoned vehicle found around 18 km on the Necoslie Forest Service Road.

The vehicle had been there for some time, as it was snowed in and no longer accessible by wheeled vehicle, and officers reached the vehicle by snowmobile in order to investigate further.

Prince George RCMP General Duty officers attended the registered owner’s residence on Redwood Street in Prince George to check on his well being, but he was not located.

Further checks were made with neighbours, friends and family, all with negative results.

As a result of these checks, Prince George RCMP entered into a missing person investigation.

Since Friday investigators have attended many locations and spoken to dozens of people, without success.

It is believed that Wain has not been seen in the Prince George area in over two weeks, soo anyone in contact with him  in the past 30 days is asked to speak to RCMP.

Wain knows people throughout northern B.C. including Fraser Lake, Vanderhoof and the Peace River region.

Wain is described as:

• Caucasian male

• 175 cm (5’9”)

• 82 kg (181 lbs)

• Grey hair

• Blue eyes

• Moustache

• Glasses

On the morning of Wednesday Feb. 6, Fort St. James Search & Rescue began to search the rural area outside Fort St. James where Mr. Wain’s vehicle was located.  This search is still underway and includes the assistance of the RCMP’s Air Services Section and RCMP Police Dog Service
