Family asks for help in search for missing man
The parents of a Calgary man who went missing on Monday are asking fellow citizens to help join the search for their son.
Police say Andrew Edy was last seen leaving the Rockyview General Hospital on foot around 6:30 a.m. on Monday. Parents Brian and Patricia Edy say their 22-year-old son was having a mental health crisis at the time of his disappearance, adding Andrew was wearing a T-shirt, black jeans and no shoes when he left the hospital.
“He is a lovely, personable guy; he’s very charming, great social skills,” Patricia said. “Unfortunately he wasn’t in a great state of mind so he might be ... very frightened.”
Brian said police, along with family and friends, have been searching the communities and wooded areas near where Andrew was last seen.
The family is organizing search efforts across the city with the help of volunteer co-ordinator Vivan Ewart. The Edys ask anyone who wants to help with the search to contact Ewart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers searching the downtown core produced “a few leads, but they’re not definitive.”
The family is asking anyone in communities near the Rockyview Hospital to keep an eye out for Andrew and to check garages, sheds, wooded areas and apartment buildings for signs he’s been in the area.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234.
