Just before 12:30 p.m. Friday, Greater Sudbury Police received a call regarding Henri Montpellier, 55, who is missing.
A family member had concerns for his well-being as he had not been heard from since Thursday morning, police said in a news release Friday.
“Officers attended the area of Vermilion South Shore Road and Lockerby Mine Access Road where they spoke with neighbours who indicated that they had seen Henri yesterday evening around 6:30 p.m., but that he had not been seen since,” the release said.
“Officers checked the property and nearby locations that Henri tends to visit, however he was not found.”
Members of the rural community response unit, traffic management unit and Greater Sudbury Fire Services are searching the water in boats, while officers continue to search the shoreline on foot.
Montpellier is 6-1, weighs around 235 pounds, with short dark hair and brown eyes. He sometimes wears glasses as seen in the photo and was last seen wearing a blue tank top and shorts.
“A search and rescue amphibious aircraft will be assisting while officers and water rescue firefighters continue to search the waterway,” the release said.
Anyone with information related to Montpellier's whereabouts is asked to contact police at 705-675-9171.
