Police said he is of no fixed address and his family does not have regular contact with him, but noted he has not replied to their messages on social media, which has them worried.

“We would like to ensure Mr. Hedlund’s well-being given his family’s concern, but we also have the outstanding warrants that need to be dealt with,” said Sgt. Jeff Scott in a media release.
