Brian, 51-years of age from Newfoundland, is a transport truck driver who was last seen on surveillance video at a gas station in Summerstown around 4:30 p.m. on April 24, 2024. His personal belongings were left in the vehicle.

Investigators want to hear from motorists who have dashcam video from Highway-401 westbound, in the Boundary Road area near Cornwall from April 25, 2024, between 10:30 a.m. and noon. An individual, partially matching Brian’s description had been reported along the highway at that time but could not be located when officers arrived.

The OPP is also asking hunters or others with trail cameras in the South Glengarry, South Stormont and Cornwall area to check for any possible sightings.

Brian is described as:

  • 5’10” (178 cm)
  • Medium build, 200 lbs (91 kg)
  • Brown eyes
  • Short brown hair

He was last seen wearing a blue hoodie, jeans and possibly a ball cap. 

The OPP Emergency Response Team (ERT), Canine Units, Remote Piloted Aerial System, an OPP helicopter and members of the Ontario Search and Rescue Volunteer Association have been conducting searches of the area.

We appreciate offers of assistance from the public, but untrained civilians can actually interfere with our work, contaminating potential scent trails, that our Canines could track and interfere with possible evidence or signs that could lead us to locate Brian.

Anyone with information should contact the SD&G OPP Detachment at 1-888-310-1122 and reference incident E240508329.
