VicPD Missing Persons investigators are working with U.S. law enforcement agencies, including the Port Angeles Police Department, in an effort to find missing 52-year-old Harold Backer.

VicPD detective Sgt. Kris Rice said they continue to receive tips.

“Tips are important in a missing persons file like this and sometimes it is the smallest detail that helps. It could be something that appears insignificant that help us bring Harold safely home to his family,” Rice said.
