40-year-old Gordon Oper (Nanaimo RCMP)

Nanaimo RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing man who may be riding his motorcycle somewhere on Vancouver Island.

40-year-old Gordon Oper was reported missing Wednesday and hasn’t been in contact with his family since Monday, April 5th.

“Oper maintains regular contact with family and for him to stop all communication is out of character, and have caused them concern,” RCMP said in a press release.

Oper may be travelling on a black Harley Davidson motorcycle with a white pinstripe. Investigators have confirmed through social media that he was at Stella Lake north of Campbell River four days ago.

No plate number or further description of the motorcycle was available.

Oper is described as Caucasian, 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, with a mustache and goatee and has a small tattoo under his left eye. He walks with a noticeable limp.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Nanaimo RCMP’s non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file No. 2020-13136.
