A woman emailed to say she is sure it was him - ran across Osborne Bay Rd, on the Duncan Side of Maple Mountain Park, when she was on her way home last night.
THIS IS A VERY HOPEFUL SIGN - he is in familiar territory and getting very close to home. He has hiked around these areas many times.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS NOW to hike (and poster) the trails on Maple Mtn, the Escarpment to Duncan, the powerlines to Duncan, the Crofton Lake trails, and all areas between Maple Mtn on the east, Crofton on the north, Herd Rd on the south, and Hwy 1 on the west (and especially the escarpment/Richards Rd area!).
If anyone here knows where I live, I have left some posters in my mail box and at the SPCA (which is also in the general area of his travels).
