Brantford, Ont., police say they now suspect foul play in the disappearance of a man who was last seen more than a month ago.

Investigators say Brayden Ferrall, 22, of Brantford was reported missing on Feb. 22 after friends and family said they hadn’t seen him for several days — behaviour they said was out of character for him.

He’s described as being five-feet-10-inches tall and weighing about 175 pounds, with a medium build, short brown hair and a trimmed beard, and was last seen wearing a black winter jacket with fur around the hood.

Over the past six weeks, police say they’ve received multiple phone calls and tips through Crime Stoppers and have done several canvasses for information or video that might help track down Ferrall.
