UPDATE: 6:45 p.m. Feb. 2
Paul Kormendy has been found and is in hospital, according to an RCMP media release.
VERNON – A directors warrant under the B.C. Mental Health Act has been issued for a missing Vernon man.
RCMP say Paul Kormendy, 28, left a medical facility in Vernon on Saturday, Jan. 31 without finishing his treatment.
“Inquiries have been done at the usual places that Paul liked to go however he had not been found,” RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk says in a media release. “Information from relatives is that it is possible that Paul may attempt to walk into a forested area to camp, or he may even attempt to hitchhike to Calgary as he has relatives there.”
Kormendy also hangs out in the Green Stone Tower area of Kamloops as well, Modendyk says.
The directors warrant gives the RCMP the power to detain Kormendy and return him to the medical facility he went missing from.
Kormendy is described at 6’2” tall and 181 lbs. He has blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a camouflage baseball cap, red zip-up hoodie and jeans.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the nearest RCMP detachment.
