Vince Olsen (Facebook)

The vehicle of missing Saanich Peninsula man, 36-year-old Vincent Olsen, was located down an embankment last week near Sombrio Beach.

Sooke RCMP discovered his unoccupied blue 2016 Buick Verano shortly after 1 p.m. on Oct. 21st, the same day he was last heard from.

Mounties described the crash as a single-vehicle collision.

In a release, police say Olsen sent text messages and a photo of himself to his ex-girlfriend.

The photo appears to be taken from inside another vehicle and showed injuries he likely sustained in the crash.

Police are looking to speak with the person who picked Olsen up after the crash so they can determine his well-being and whereabouts.

According to RCMP, Olsen has connections in multiple Vancouver Island communities, including Sooke and Duncan and may be residing there.

He is described as a First Nations man standing 5’3″ tall and weighing about 146 pounds with brown eyes and dark brown/black hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sidney/North Saanich RCMP at 250-656-3931, or if you wish to remain anonymous call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
