Missing man featured on Global’s B.C. Crime Stoppers segment found alive and well


A missing man featured on one of Global’s B.C. Crime Stoppers segments has been found alive and well.

Walter Simek was last seen on March 7, 2013 at the Brookswood Plaza in Langley.

He was dropped off near the 7-11 by an Enterprise Rent-A-Car employee after returning a car rental.

He lived alone in a RV park in White Rock, but had just moved his belongings to an unknown location. However, his cell phone and bank accounts remain untouched.

Simek was born in the Czech Republic and moved to Canada in 1986.

B.C. Crimestoppers told Global News on Wednesday Simek was found living outside of the Lower Mainland.

He and his family have asked that their privacy be respected.

Simek has now been removed from the Crime Stoppers website and related police databases.
