Vancouver Police renew call for help to find missing man

Update: July 17, 2019 

Vancouver Police are renewing a public appeal for help to locate a missing man and have released new photos.

Sixty-one-year-old David Sullivan was last seen on June 27. He has dementia and is diabetic. Mr. Sullivan is Caucasian with fair skin. He is bald and has a round face. He is between 5’10” to 6′ tall and has a heavy build.

Today, police released a new image of Mr. Sullivan that was captured on June 29 on a surveillance camera. It shows him walking, wearing a red and white checkered short-sleeved shirt and brown pants, and carrying a blue bag that looks like a gym bag. Mr. Sullivan is also known to wear a tag with a chain around his neck with his address on it.

“It has been almost two weeks since Mr. Sullivan was last seen. We are hopeful we find him with help from the public and he can be reunited with his family,” says Sergeant Jason Robillard, VPD.

Mr. Sullivan was the subject of VPD media release on July 4. Anyone who sees David Sullivan is asked to call 9-1-1 and stay with him until police arrive.
