Elderly man goes missing from BC Ferries vessel en route to Tsawwassen

Elderly man goes missing from BC Ferries vessel en route to Tsawwassen”

An 80-year-old man is missing after he boarded a B.C. ferry at Swartz Bay headed to Tsawwassen Thursday night.

When the ferry docked and unloaded, staff found a vehicle with no driver in it on the auto deck.

Delta Police say they searched the vessel and could not find him.

Marshall said there have been no reports that anyone on the sailing saw someone go overboard.

JRCC launched a search of the area with about five other vessels and a Coast Guard hovercraft last night.

Search-and-rescue crews swept the ferry's route by sea and air from midnight to 8 a.m. Friday morning - exceeding possible survival times in the water - without finding any clues.

The case has now been turned over to the Delta Police Force.

"Upon arrival at Tsawwassen, the man did not return to his vehicle, which was abandoned on the ferry", said a DPD news release. Police will be investigating this further.

Marshall said Delta Police identified the man, who is believed to be from Victoria.
