VANCOUVER - Delta Police are leading the search for an older man who went missing on a ferry between Victoria and Vancouver on Thursday night.

B.C. Ferries spokeswoman Deborah Marshall says a vehicle was left on deck after the ferry docked, on the 9 p.m. sailing from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen.

She says video footage shows an "elderly" man driving the car through the ticketing booth at Swartz Bay, but he doesn't appear in any other footage from the vessel after that.

Delta Police say they searched the vessel and could not find him.

The man is believed to be from Victoria.

He is described as 80 years old with a heavy build.

Police say he has brown hair and eyes and was last seen wearing a grey sweater with dark grey or black pants.

Anyone who may have seen the man is asked to contact Delta Police.
