      Original article (March 26):

      Family, friends, and police are worried about the safety and well-being of a 64-year-old man with medical conditions who disappeared from Vancouver Island early last week.

      Nanaimo RCMP stated today (March 26) that Lance Geddes has not been seen or heard from since he left his home in Nanaimo on March 16.

      He had indicated that he was planning on traveling to Vancouver.

      Based on information gathered by investigators, he did not arrive in Vancouver. Meanwhile, investigators are currently reviewing video surveillance from B.C. Ferries.

      Geddes has significant medical and mobility issues, and he consequently requires daily medication.

      He doesn’t have a phone and may have limited cash as he hasn’t accessed his bank accounts.

      He is described as being 175 centimetres (five-feet, nine-inches) tall and he uses a cane to walk with.

      Anyone with information of his whereabouts is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
