Fuelled by concern for the well-being of a Victoria man who has been missing for more than a week, Victoria police detectives are now leading the investigation.

Daniel Grandza, 32, was reported missing by a family member May 1, and since then police have twice asked for the public’s help.

Grandza was last seen the evening of April 27 at a friend’s home in Fernwood. Since then he has not been to work , nor has he contacted friends or family.

He has been known to go on camping and hiking trips in East Sooke Park, Mount Douglas Park and Mount Finlayson.

“We are specifically looking to talk to anyone who may have seen or heard from Daniel since his disappearance,” lead investigator Det. Paul Spencelayh said. “Daniel’s family and investigators are becoming more and more concerned as to his whereabouts.”

Grandza is six-feet tall with a slender build, and has short blonde hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Paul Spencelayh at 250-995-7259.
