Timothy Mackness, 59, was last seen on Sept. 20 near Quadra Street and McKenzie Avenue in Saanich, according to police in a news release Wednesday.
Police describe Mackness as a Caucasian man standing 6’0″ tall with a slender build, blue eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing hospital-style pants and a blue hoodie.
Victoria Police were initially responsible for finding him, however, new facts in the case led officers to determine he was last spotted in Saanich.
