It’s been more than a year since anyone has reported seeing Timothy Cameron.
The 53-year-old North Vancouver man was last seen at a bus stop on Marine Drive near Pemberton Avenue at around 11 a.m. on Aug. 18, 2012, following a separation with his common-law wife, Cari Wineberg.
Wineberg dropped him off while the couple discussed the possibility of reconciliation, according to a statement released by North Vancouver RCMP.
“Tim asked me if it was over, and the last thing I told him was that it wasn’t impossible, but that it may take up to a year,” Wineberg is quoted as saying in the release.
Wineberg reported Cameron missing shortly afterward, but attempts to track down the construction worker and commercial fisherman have been complicated by Cameron’s off-the-grid lifestyle.
Cameron has no bank account, leaving police with no electronic transactions to track. He has also been known to take fishing jobs out of town, frequently working for cash.
Police have previously reported that Cameron has been out of touch with loved ones for longer than was usual, and he left behind clothing and other possessions.
“Now that a year has come and gone, this scenario of him coming back to perhaps mend their relationship, although possible, is looking less probable,” said Const. Mary-Louise Zadravetz of the North Vancouver RCMP Missing Persons Unit.
Cameron is six feet fall with a slim build, grey hair and blue eyes.
Police are asking anyone with information on Cameron to call the North Vancouver RCMP’s unsolved homicide/missing person’s unit at 604-969-7505 or 604-969-7568.
