VANCOUVER – It has now been two years since 38-year-old Phillip Lee Lyons went missing from a halfway house in Kelowna, but police and his mother are not giving up hope.
On May 26, 2012, Lyons was on day parole as a first-time federal offender when he walked away from the halfway house. Police issued a Canada-wide warrant for the suspension of Lyons’ parole and he has been unlawfully at large since that time. They have not released why he was at the halfway house.
The house is the last place he was seen and he has not contacted family since before he left.
The last time his mother spoke to him was on May 24, 2012, and she now fears the worst as it is not like Lyons to be out of touch with his family for so long.
“Anyone who knows where he could be, or what happened to him, please let us know so we can have some closure,” said Mary Veno, Lyons’ mother. “As his mother, I just really need to know.”
Lyons was very familiar with the Okanagan area but he had expressed a desire to return to New Brunswick.
He is described as:
