KELOWNA – It’s been a month since a Kelowna man was last seen and police are hoping there is someone with information that could help locate him.

Martin J. Thiffault, 48, was reported missing to Kelowna RCMP on April 24, but he was last heard from on April 19.

RCMP say investigators have followed up on several leads, but Thiffault is still missing.

“Kelowna RCMP’s missing person coordinator continues to actively investigate his disappearance,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a media release. “It is very uncommon for Martin to be out of contact with his family or friends for this amount of time and we are, of course, concerned for his well-being.”

Police describe Thiffault as a Caucasian man, 5’6” tall, 157 lbs. with brown hair, a brown goatee and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact their local police, or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
