Kamloops police seek help in finding missing man
Kamloops rural Mounties are looking for the public's help in tracking down a man who has been missing since wandering away from a Shuswap Road home earlier this week.
Police say Frederick Yellowoldwoman was last seen on Tuesday night (June 14), when he left a home in the 600-block of Shuswap Road on foot.
Yellowoldwoman, 54, is from Alberta, but was in Kamloops with his wife. They were staying with friends.
"At approximately 10:30 p.m., he went to bed in a downstairs bedroom," said Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned.
"At about 5:30 a.m. the next morning, occupants of the house first noticed that he was gone, that the front door to the house was open and all his clothes and personal belongings were still in the house."
Learned said Yellowoldwoman suffers from a medical condition that requires daily medication and monitoring.
"His family and friends are concerned for his physical well-being due to the lack of access he has to his medication," he said.
Yellowoldwoman is described as a native male, standing about five-foot-11 and weighing approximately 200 pounds. He has black hair cut short on the sides and collar-length in the back.
He has brown eyes and the letter F tattooed on his left thumb.
Search-and-rescue teams are searching the area around the house in which Yellowstone was staying, and a water search of the Thompson River is scheduled to take place later this afternoon (June 16).
Anyone with information is asked to contact Kamloops Rural RCMP at 250-314-1800.
