Kelowna man missing, family concerned

Mohammedine Madani was reported to police as missing on July 17.

Kelowna RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in locating a man who investigators believe may possibly be somewhere in the Okanagan Valley.

Mohammedine Madani was reported to police as missing on July 17. He was last heard from by family on or about July 1.

“At that time Mr. Madani eluded to his family that he had sought employment at a farm or orchard in the Okanagan as a seasonal agricultural worker,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, in a press release.

“Since his disappearance, police have followed up on several leads, however Mohammedine remains missing. There is nothing to indicate foul play at this time and police believe Mohammedine may still be in the Okanagan Valley, although it is possible that he has since travelled to the Lower Mainland or Vancouver Island.”

Police are concerned for Mohammedine’s health and well-being as his family report that it is out of character for him to be out of contact for this long.
