The RCMP say he has not been seen or heard from since. Police and his family in Ontario are now concerned for his safety.

“They’re very anxious to hear about his well-being,” said North Vancouver RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Richard De Jong.

Described as a “lives-off-the-land kind of guy” by De Jong, Gardin had been travelling and camping across the country when RCMP found him illegally camped near a Lynn Canyon Park trail.  

“Now family and police back there are realizing that was the last contact anybody had with him,” De Jong said.

The Guelph RCMP recently filed a missing persons report with the North Vancouver branch, which is asking for the public’s assistance.

Gardin is described as a Caucasian male with brown hair, blue eyes and a beard. He stands approximately 5-7 and weighs 150 pounds.

Those who think they might know Gardin’s whereabouts, or recall seeing him last October, are asked to contact the RCMP at 604-985-1311.
