Update: RCMP say missing person Ryan Vetter, 20, has been found.


KELOWNA – RCMP are asking for help to find a missing 20-year-old man with autism who’s been missing for over 24 hours.

Police say Ryan Vetter was last seen Saturday morning, May 30, at his home in Rutland.

Vetter was wearing glasses, a black T-shirt and was seen riding a Schwinn mountain bike. He could have a dark coloured backpack with him, according to RCMP, and investigators think he could be on his way to Ashcroft on his mountain bike.

Vetter has a moderate form of autism, RCMP say. His family is concerned because he usually isn’t gone for this long and has never been missing overnight.

Anyone with information relating to Vetter’s whereabouts is asked to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
