The North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a 25-year-old Ladysmith man.

There have not been any confirmed sightings of Freddy since July 25.

Freddy was last seen in Duncan and is still believed to be in the area.

Freddy is described as being 5 foot 6 inches tall, 157 pounds with black hair, a goatee and brown eyes.

He has a tattoo on the left side of his neck that says “Maddy”.
