(John Wesley Edwards / Comox Valley RCMP)

The Comox Valley RCMP are still search for a missing 45-year-old man last seen in Courtenay on March 20th.

In a media release, police say it is unusual for John Wesley Edwards, or “Wes”, to go a long period of time without contacting friends or family, so they are concerned for his well-being.

He is known to travel to Alberta and may have made his way out there before he stopped
communicating.

“We need to make sure Wes is alright. We have interviewed multiple people who know Wes; however, still nobody has seen him or heard from him since March 20th in Courtenay,” said Cst. Carlson of the Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit.

Edwards is described as 5’9” tall and weighs approximately 145 pounds, with blonde/grey hair and blue eyes.

Anyone who sees John Wesley Edwards or knows where he may be is asked to call the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
