A mother desperate to find her son is pleading with Kelowna RCMP and the public to help find him.
Philip Lee Lyons, 37, was last seen in Kelowna May 26 at the halfway house where he lived. His mother was contacted by police about his disappearance June 12.
"I knew there was something wrong before that," writes Lyons' mom. "Philip hadn't called for the last two weeks, as he called me almost every night between 5:30 and 7 (p.m.), as he knew I'd be watching my shows. There were days that he would call two or three times…."
And with the holidays so near, Lyons' mom is feeling it more, telling police her son often spoke of coming home for Christmas to Doaktown, New Brunswick, though he liked living at the halfway house.
"I know he has been in trouble most of his life," she writes, "but he is still my son… even with him wanted on a warrant he would let us know he is OK, but no word."
The Canada wide warrant on Lyons is for suspension of his parole.
"It just seems like the ground has opened up and pulled him in," Lyons' mom states. "I know there is someone out there that knows what happened to my son. I am just a mother in desperate need to know."
Lyons' mom says her son has always had someone to look after him and asks the public to help her so she can have peace of mind.
Lyons is described as 5'10", 220 lbs, brown hair, hazel eyes, tattoos on right shoulder, skull art on left shoulder and tattoos on his forearms.
Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
