The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is appealing to the public to help locate a man who has not contacted family or friends since leaving for a camping trip in mid-July.

Tyson Douglas Cowie, 28, was reported missing from his Abbotsford residence on July 22.

Const. Ian MacDonald said Cowie had advised family that he was going on a camping trip in the Vancouver area on July 12 and was expected to be gone for several days.

Cowie has gone on extended camping trips in the past, including out of province and out of country, and has always returned, MacDonald said.

“However, the length of his absence and lack of contact with family and friends have greatly increased the level of concern,” MacDonald said.

He said police have been working closely with the family and it was agreed today (Thursday) that the investigation would include a public appeal.

Cowie is six feet tall, weighs 180 pounds and has brown eyes and long brown hair. He almost always wears the toque featured in the above photo.

Anyone with information should contact the APD at 604-859-5225 or text 222973 (abbypd).
