Police on the Sunshine Coast are asking for the public’s help to find a missing man.

On June 18th, 2019 RCMP were notified that Thomas Hines had not returned from a canoe trip on Waugh Lake in Egmont. He was last seen on June 17th, but it wasn’t until his canoe was found the next day on the lake that police were called.

Hines is described as a 26 year old Caucasian male, with short brown hair and brown eyes, clean shaven, 5’8′ with a stocky build, and approximately 180 lbs. He may have been wearing khaki cargo shorts and a button up black and brown shirt.

Sunshine Coast Search and Rescue conducted an extensive search of the lake and shoreline and are continuing that search today with assistance from Squamish Search and Rescue and the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Sunshine Coast RCMP detachment.
