Kamloops RCMP have released a new image and some new information about a Kelowna man who has been missing for over two weeks.

Joseph Driscoll, 43, of Kelowna was reported missing to police on Nov. 15 and his last documented contact occurred on Nov. 11.

“Since the initial appeal to the public, police have collected video footage that confirms Joseph was not dressed for the weather and was outside in the Valleyview area for some time,” Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Crystal Evelyn said in a media release issued today, Nov. 28.

Police are releasing a photo from the video footage in hopes of furthering the investigation into his disappearance.

“Police are very concerned for his wellbeing and are asking residents to please check their sheds and outbuildings, as well as their home security or dash cameras, for any signs that he could have been there,” Cpl. Evelyn said.

Driscoll was seen around 11:50 p.m., Nov. 11, in the video footage walking away from the Tournament Inn. At around 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 12, a security camera captured an image of him at a Valleyview motel. About 15 minutes later he was observed on the 1700 block of the East Trans-Canada Highway near Wendy’s and McDonalds in Valleyview.

“We are releasing the image of Joseph taken around 1:30 a.m. in hopes that someone will recognize him, or his clothing, in particular his unique dark sweater with fluorescent character on the front,” Cpl. Evelyn said. “He was also wearing dark long-john style pants and ankle boots.”

Police describe Driscoll as a 42-year-old male, 5'10" tall, 166 lb., bald with green eyes. He has a tribal tattoo on his neck, a skull tattoo on his left forearm and a tribal tattoo on his upper back.

Anyone with information related to this investigation is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2022-41053.
