      The search for Vancouver hiker who was last seen on the weekend is continuing on, with more search-and-rescue teams joining the search as well as a family member flying out from Newfoundland.

      On October 13, the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) asked for the public’s help in locating 25-year-old Jordan Naterer, who may have gone hiking in Manning Park.

      He was last seen leaving his apartment at Seymour and Nelson streets in Downtown Vancouver at 7 a.m. on October 10. He had been expected to attend a Thanksgiving dinner with friends on October 12 but he didn’t show up, which is said to be out of character.

      His black 2016 Honda Civic with B.C. license plate LA248W was located at the Frosty Mountain Trailhead by the Lightning Lake day-use area in Manning Park.

      Naterer is described as a white male with fair skin, short brown hair, and a slim build, and who is 178 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall.

      He had last been seen wearing black pants and white running shoes, and he was carrying a large green backpack.

      Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911 and remain with him until police arrive.

      CTV News Vancouver reported that his friends contacted his family in St. John’s, Newfoundland, who are concerned about his disappearance and his father has flown out to B.C. to help in the search for him.

      He reportedly had planned to do a solo hike but did not leave a trip plan.

      Search and rescue teams from Hope, Princeton, Penticton, Nicola Valley, Chilliwack, and the Central Fraser Valley have all joined in the search.
