UPDATE: Da.vid Atk.ins was located by the Sooke RCMP on the morning of Dec 6, 2019, and is safe. Thank you to the public for their assistance in locating him.
Patrol officers are asking for your help as we work to locate high-risk missing man Da.vid Atki.ns. David is described as a 64-year-old Caucasian male standing approximately five feet, eight inches tall with a slender build. David has hazel eyes as well as short salt and pepper dark brown hair. He is clean-shaven. David often wears loose, baggy clothing, with many layers. He was last seen wearing a sweatshirt and sweat pants. David adorns his clothing with distinctive, homemade symbols, similar to a “no smoking” sign. Photographs of David and the symbols on his clothing are below.
David suffers from a health concern. The circumstances through which he has gone missing place him at risk of immediate harm.
There is some indication that David may be in the Sooke area, although he is also known to frequent the Mount Work area as well. VicPD officers are working with our partners at Saanich PD and the RCMP as we search for David.
David’s family and friends are very worried about him and need him to be located safely.
