A Surrey man has been missing since Feb. 16 and his family is very concerned because he is in need of mediation.

Sixty-two-year-old Michael Fontaine is believed to have left his home in the 2000-block of 156 Street in Surrey, between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. last Thursday. He has not been seen or heard from since.

Police say Fontaine has a medical condition for which he takes medication and it is not believed he has any with him.

Fontaine is described as:

  • Caucasian man
  •  5’10”
  • 165 lbs
  • Grey hair
  • Blue eyes
  • He wears glasses and has a grey scruffy beard
  • He is believed to be wearing black or grey sweat pants, a black vest and a grey or black hoodie and blue slip-on shoes.

Fontaine walks very slowly and is unstable on his feet. He uses a burgundy wood cane.

Police say it is very unusual for him to be away from home for this long.  He is likely on foot and would not have gone too far.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Michael Fontaine is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca, quoting file number 2017-21512.
