UPDATE: William has been located and is safe, according to his family.


Ucuelet RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing 95-year-old man.

William (Bill) Sapsford was last seen in Uclulet purchasing a bus ticket to Victoria, at 9 AM on September 20th.

His Greyhound arrived in Victoria at around 8:00 PM but there were no signs of Sapsford leaving the bus.

Sapsford uses a walker, and is described as Caucasian, 5’3″, weighing about 120 lbs, and has balding grey hair and a grey beard under his chin.

“Vic PD has checked the Greyhound Station and there’s no signs of him getting off the bus in Victoria and I’ve checked his house and no signs of him there,” his granddaughter, Stephanie Sapsford, told Victoria Buzz.

Police are asking anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact their local RCMP detachment.
