RCMP looking for missing 64-year-old Nanaimo man

Lance Geddes has not been seen or heard from since March 16

Nanaimo RCMP have turned to the public for help to locate 64-year-old Lance Geddes who has not been seen or heard from since March 16.

Geddes has significant medical and mobility issues, which require daily medication.

Geddes left his Nanaimo home 10 days ago and indicated he was planning on travelling to Vancouver. Based on information gathered to date by investigators, it appears Geddes never arrived in Vancouver. Police are now reviewing video surveillance footage from B.C. Ferries.

Geddes has no phone, may have a limited amount of cash on his person and has not accessed his bank accounts.

He is 5-foot-9 with a medium build and walks with the help of a cane.

Anyone with any information about Geddes’s whereabouts is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file No. 2020-10718.
