Police believe the occupants of the pickup truck found the man on Highway 12 near Forest Heights Community School. Police say they left with the man, headed north towards New Ross on the same highway.

The RCMP says evidence gathered does not conclude that the bike was in the area when the man was assisted.

Officers are trying to determine whether the man on the side of the road was Timothy Wells.

“Although police have not been able to confirm that the person who was offered a ride was Wells, they would like to speak with the occupants of the truck to determine whether this was the case,” police said in the news release.
