Kelowna Mounties are requesting public assistance in locating a 49-year-old Kelowna man who has been missing since April.

Kelowna police received a report of a missing person from a residence on the 1400 block of Cherry Crescent April 30 at 2:15 p.m.

The report indicated William “Bill” Hermakin had not been seen since April 26 at about 10 a.m.

It was determined Hermakin had picked up his ATV from a storage facility and left with it in the back of his truck.

Hermakin is under medical care and requires medication for his condition.

Police located Hermakin’s ATV burned up at the Adra Tunnel on the Kettle Valley railway above Naramata and later located his truck near the old Bellevue Trestle.

Police have conducted extensive searches in the areas that both vehicles were located and in between, including the derelict Adra Tunnel.

Hermakin’s whereabouts remain unknown.

He’s described as a five-foot-nine, 185-pound Caucasian man with brown hair and hazel eyes.

He has a scar on his nose as well as both ears. He was last seen wearing a white and green striped dress shirt and blue jeans.

Police are requesting hunters and hikers that frequent the area keep an eye out for any signs of Hermakin’s whereabouts and specifically for any items resembling Hermakin’s clothing.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Hermakin are asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
