VicPD are seeking the public’s help in locating a missing 40-year-old man last seen in late August, 2021.

Police described him as a Caucasian man standing 5’10” tall, with a slim build and has blue eyes. He had a shaved head when he was last seen, but has dirty blonde hair. He was most recently seen clean shaven, but has worn a long, dirty blonde beard in the past.

If you see Semple, call 911.
