The Prince George RCMP will get up close and personal with the area of the last known sighting of a missing Fort Ware man.
Tonight, police and the Prince George Search and Rescue Society will conduct a ground search for Barry Blain Seymour around the Sunrise Trailer Court on Lansdowne Road.
The search, which kicks off around 5 p.m., will consist of only trained police and search and rescue personnel and is expected to last until just before darkness falls tonight.
An aerial search of the Fraser River between Prince George and Quesnel was completed by the RCMP Air Services sections on June 22, with no results.
Seymour was reported missing on May 26 after the last reported sighing on May 23. He came to town with family members to attend his son's birthday and then opted to stay in the city for a few more days.
He is described as aboriginal, 32 years old, 170 cm (5'7") tall, weighing 174 lbs, with black hair and brown eyes.
Officers have followed up on a number of leads and conducted many interviews, according to RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Craig Douglass. Currently, there is no evidence to indicate Seymour has been the victim of foul play and police want to at least rule out the land area where he was last seen.
"We're coming to a point where we're running out of information," Douglass said.
Police can't embark on a search like this for every report of a missing person, of which they receive hundreds per year.
While at first, the RCMP had no reason to believe he wasn't still in the community, Douglass said that as the investigation has gone on, there has been no trace of Seymour.
"We decided to do a ground investigation to rule out other things," he said.
Anyone with information on Seymour's whereabouts is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, online at www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca, or Text-a-Tip to CRIMES using keyword "pgtips."
