Hooper is known to frequent many locations in Greater Victoria and he is known to camp. His tent is missing from his house.

A friend of Hooper’s reports seeing him on Aug. 2 in downtown Victoria, though this is the last sighting.

“We’re hoping that the public can assist us in locating Mr. Hooper,” said Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz. “Family and friends are concerned about Mr. Hooper’s whereabouts as they have not heard from him and he requires medication on a regular basis, which he does not have with him.”

RCMP are asking anyone with information to call the detachment at 250-474-2264.
