After a three-day search, RCMP and Arrowsmith Search and Rescue (ASAR) personnel stood down Sunday night and are hoping for more clues that will help them locate a missing 58-year-old Errington man.

Richard Norman was last seen by family on Friday morning at his home near the Englishman River Provincial Park. ASAR volunteers searched the area Friday night, all day Saturday and all day Sunday. About 30 people were involved in the search each day, said Yelland.

“There was no sign of him at all,” ASAR search manager Gord Yelland told The NEWS at noon on Monday. “And we weren’t able to find any clues. The search has been stood down until we get more information.”

Norman described as a Caucasian male, 6-foot-3 with a heavy build. He has very short, buzz-cut white hair, hazel eyes and severe scarring on the left side of his forehead

Police said Norman is believed to be on foot and could be anywhere in the wilderness or park land. Police also said he suffers from a brain injury as a result of trauma from a past motor vehicle collision. If you see Norman or have any information, police are asking you to call the Oceanside RCMP detachment immediately at 250-248-6111.
