VANCOUVER – Search and Rescue crews and RCMP are looking for a missing 70-year-old man who went for his nightly walk on July 10 and has not been seen since.

Iain Hollier has advanced level dementia and may be very disorientated.

Hollier does not have access to a vehicle.

He was last seen wearing off-white pants, a short sleeved shirt with white, pale blue and reddish stripes and a faded brown baseball cap with a happy face on it.

Hollier is described as 5’9″, 195 lbs, Caucasian, with a white beard with moustache. He is physically fit and capable of walking a significant distance. Also, the top half of Hollier’s thumb is missing from a prior injury.
