Saskatoon and Victoria Police and the Vancouver Island RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating a high-risk missing man.

Tanner Afseth, 25, is described as a Caucasian man with thinning brown hair and a trim beard standing six-foot-four and 175 pounds. Afseth has blue eyes and a scar on his right ankle. He was last seen wearing a multi-coloured bandana on his head.

Afseth is believed to be driving a grey 2005 Nissan Altima with a Saskatchewan licence plate 855 IGS and he is accompanied by his dog, a tri-coloured Bernedoodle named Soma.

Police believe he was heading to Whitehorse, but Afseth was last seen in Shawnigan Lake on July 26 and investigators say he may be in Ladysmith or the Victoria area.

Anyone who spots him is asked to call 911 or call the non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 with information.
