DEASE LAKE RCMP are now asking for the public’s help as the search continues for a missing man from Alaska.

Anthony Adevai’s truck was found abandoned near Kinaskan Lake on Hwy37 North on Nov. 29 and no trace of him has been found since.

Officers are now looking for people who travelled the highway Nov. 28 onward in hopes they may have seen Adevai or anyone matching his description.

Adevai, 70, was returning from a trip to Oregon and his family was last in contact with him when he was in Cache Creek on Nov. 27.

His last reported contact was with a truck driver near Iskut the following day, Nov. 28.

Kinaskan Lake is approximately 31 kilometres south of Iskut and Iskut is approximately 83 kilometres south of Dease Lake.

Adevai has grey hair, beard and wears glasses. Anyone who may have seen him or knows where he may be is asked to call the Dease Lake RCMP at 250-771-4111 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Adevai’s family says he suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and has progressive dementia.

His family has also posted a $10,000 reward.

Calls to hotel and motels in the area have proven unsuccessful.
