KAMLOOPS - Police in Kamloops now believe that a missing man last seen at his home earlier this week may have met with foul play.

Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says in a news release investigation and information received by the serious crimes unit indicates foul play is a factor in Troy Gold's disappearance on Oct. 1.

Shelkie says at this point the RCMP are pursuing various investigative avenues in several locations around Kamloops. Today, Oct. 5, Kamloops RCMP and Kamloops Search and Rescue are searching different areas in hopes of finding Gold.

Gold, 35, was convicted of murdering a man on a Penticton beach in 2001, according to a Kelowna Daily Courier report

Online court documents show Gold has appeared in law courts all across the province, including in Kamloops and Kelowna. His most recent conviction was for a theft charge out of Kamloops, and he was sentenced to a four-month conditional sentence order, followed by eight months probation.

Documents also show that Gold had an alias of "Shorty". Gold was placed on a different conditional sentence order in Victoria back in 2012, once again for theft charges. He's also been convicted of other charges including assault and robbery.

Gold is described as Caucasian, 5'6", with short dirty blonde hair, a goatee, tattoos of the words “love” and “hate” on his knuckles and a letter “G” tattooed on each hand. He was last seen wearing black sweat pants, a grey hoodie, a blue and white Blue Jays hat, and blue Adidas shoes.

If you have any information about his disappearance, call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
