Saanich Police are asking for assistance from the public to locate a missing 54 year old male.

Michael Garrette RYAN was reported as missing on October 7, 2015, and has not been located.

"It is believed that Michael is still likely somewhere on Vancouver Island" Sgt. Steve Eassie said. "Michael has previously been reported as missing and has been located at various spots on the island, as far north as Campbell River. However, Michael is not usually missing for this length of time which is concerning".

Police are concerned about Michael's well-being and wish for him to be located so that his mental health can be assessed.

Michael was last believed to be in the Menzies / James Bay area of Victoria.

He is described as 5'10" tall, approximately 175 pounds, with green eyes and black hair with a receding hair line. It is believed that Michael was last wearing a dark leather jacket, leather cap, and jeans.

Investigators believe that Michael is likely living on the street, or possibly staying with a friend. "Mike", as he is known, will likely present as being overly talkative, and as someone that may be in need of assistance.

Anyone who may have seen Michael Garrette RYAN, or may be aware of his whereabouts, are asked to contact the Saanich Police Department at 250-475-4321.
