BURLING­TON — On Jan. 9 — his 28th birth­day — Landry Nt­wari trav­elled from his home in Burling­ton to Ni­a­gara Falls.

He didn’t tell any­one what he was do­ing, or why he had trav­elled to that city six times since Oc­to­ber, said Hal­ton po­lice Det. Joe Barr. It was al­ready his sec­ond trip that month.

What is known is that he checked into a down­town ho­tel and spent the night. The next day, Jan. 10, he could be seen on se­cu­rity walk­ing near Fallsview Boule­vard and Dunn Street in down­town Ni­a­gara Falls.

Around 7:15 p.m. he walks out of view and that is it. There has been no other sight­ing.

Po­lice are con­cerned for his safety and ask­ing the pub­lic for help.

Barr said there is no in­for­ma­tion that Nt­wari was in­volved in any­thing un­to­ward. He was not known to po­lice and has never gone miss­ing be­fore. There is no record of him cross­ing the bor­der or gam­bling.

He vis­ited the city of­ten but he was not known to ho­tel staff. He had not yet checked out of the ho­tel and had left some “per­sonal items” be­hind.

“It wasn’t so much a birth­day celebration ... it was a trip for him,” Barr said. “It’s still a bit of a mys­tery.”

Nt­wari “liked his pri­vacy” and “didn’t have a great so­cial net­work of friends,” he said.

In the se­cu­rity footage, Nt­wari is wear­ing a dark win­ter jacket with grey sleeves, tan pants and black shoes. He car­ried a small back­pack.

He’s de­scribed as black with short black hair. He’s about five-foot-five and 154 pounds. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Det. Const. Erin Toth at 905-825-4747, ext. 2313, the on-duty staff Sgt. at 905-825-4747, ext. 2310, or anony­mously through Crime Stop­pers at 1800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Nt­wari is 28.
