As the day gives way to the night officials have no intention of calling off the search for a missing Bay Roberts man.

 

Members of the Trinity Conception RCMP and Avalon North Wolverines Search and Rescue have been looking for 37-year-old Andrew Lush for all of Monday (Feb. 17).

While a ground search was undertaken with the assistance of a police service dog, the search will expand to include buildings in the area where Lush was last seen.

"We will be continuing through the evening," said Sgt. Greg Hicks.

On Sunday (Feb. 16) police recieved the report that Lush had been missing since early Saturday (Feb. 15) morning after leaving a bar on Water Street in the community.

The RCMP conducted its initial investigation, which concluded in the early hours of Feb. 17, before calling the Wolverines.

Due to high winds and rain, officials decided it would be best to start the search Monday.

While the initial search canvassed most of the east end of Bay Roberts, the search has expanded to include other areas of the community.

RCMP are describing Lush as being five-foot seven-inches (1.7 metres) tall and 240 pounds with light brown hair and green eyes.

Lush was last seen wearing blue jeans, a grey T-shirt, a blue zip-up hoodie, a baseball hat and a pair of light brow work boots.

If any member of the public has any information that may assist in the search for Lush, they are asked to call the RCMP at (709) 596-5014.

    Perhaps someone should do a spell check prior to publishing? I can spot at least 4 errors in this article. Not very professional! Hope they find this gentleman soon!
