Calgary Herald - - CITY+REGION - RYAN RUM­BOLT RRum­bolt@post­media.com

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 ve­wart@shaw.ca.

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.

An­drew Edy
