According to a Nanaimo RCMP press release, Mitchel Houle, 28, was reported missing Aug. 24, one week after his mother dropped him off at the intersection of the Nanaimo Parkway and Northfield Road.
“She has not seen or heard from his since. She also indicated that it is out of character for her son to have no contact with her. As a result, she is worried for his safety and well-being,” noted the release.
