West Kelowna man still missing
Andrew Lalonde’s family and police are continuing to seek tips or information that will give them some assistance in locating him.
Lalonde was last seen on the evening of Jan. 17 when he left his residence on Boucherie Road, leaving his personal items like his car and cell phone at home and the door open.
There have been some reports of people seeing Lalonde on the days before his disappearance, but nothing since that time.
Central Okanagan Search and Rescue, police, family and friends have completed extensive searches around the lake, Boucherie Mountain, neighbourhoods, shelters, and the hospital and other community services, with negative results. Lalonde has an alcohol addiction and his family is quite concerned that he may have become disoriented and wandered off somewhere. Local residents are asked to check outbuildings or anywhere that Lalonde may have crawled to seek shelter.
If you see Lalonde or have any information as to his whereabouts, call the West Kelowna RCMP, 250-768-2880, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222- 8477 or go online to www.crimestoppers.net.
