Over the weekend, Saanich Police released information about Hall, but according to his family, the information released was incorrect. 

Saanich Police reported that he weighed 130 pounds, was 24-years-old and had brown eyes; however, that information was incorrect, according to Hall’s the family.

“Our Major Crime Detectives and Patrol Division are working with other agencies to locate him but encourage any tips from the public.”

Hall has several tattoos, including a spider behind his left ear, a smiley face on the inside of his left forearm, and multiple chest tattoos.
