TSAWWASSEN (NEWS 1130) – In a desperate attempt to get answers, the family of a missing Tsawwassen man has issued a short video, asking for any information about his whereabouts.
Thirty-six-year-old Waylon Joe was last seen at his home at the Tsawwassen First Nation on Monday, Aug. 13.
“We have no reason to believe he intentionally went away without telling us,” his father, Marvin, says. “We are extremely concerned for his well-being.”
The pleas come in a video released by the family, which shows Marvin flanked by family members.
“Waylon has always maintained close relationships with myself, his brother, Wyatt and my wife Madonna. We speak nearly everyday, and have never in 36 years have gone more than a couple of days without contact.”
He says they are leaving no stone unturned in the search for Waylon, and is convinced someone knows something.
According to the father, Waylon has had his share of life struggles, but has turned his life around.
“He is very spiritual, and is regularly heard talking about his hopes and dreams for the future,” Marvin says. “We are so proud of how far he’s come, and of his commitment to living a life he too could be proud of.”
The family is urging anyone with information on Waylon’s whereabouts to contact the Delta Police Department at 604.946.4411 or Crime Stoppers at 1.800.222.8477 and quote police file number 18-18549.
Surrey Search and Rescue is also involved in the effort, the family says, supporting the search by land, air and water.
