Chase RCMP officers are revisiting the case of a Shuswap man who disappeared 10 years ago.

The RCMP is asking the public for any information regarding Shayne Murray Robinson, who disappeared unexpectedly in 2010, according to the RCMP in a news release.

Robinson, 40, was last heard from on July 23, 2010 and he was reported missing to the RCMP on July 28, 2010.

Although originally from Edmonton, Alta., Robinson was living in Celista, B.C. at the time of his disappearance. He was in the process of moving to the Barriere area and had borrowed his mother’s vehicle, a grey 2004 Dodge Ram 4-door pickup truck with Alberta licence plate YND 082, to make the move, according to the news release.

On Saturday, July 24, 2010 at approximately 2 a.m., the Dodge was found by the Barriere RCMP abandoned on Enterprise Way in Louis Creek near Barriere, according to the press release.

Robinson is described as Caucasian, five-foot-10, 232 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.

"The Chase RCMP remains dedicated in determining what happened to Shayne," said Sgt. Barry Kennedy, Chase RCMP detachment commander, in the press release. "We hope to be able to offer Shayne’s loved one’s answers to the questions they have carried with them for a decade now."

Anyone with information on the current whereabouts of Robinson or any information regarding his mother's abandoned Dodge truck is urged to contact their local police, the Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
