Wherever Andrew Osborne may be, police say they have no reason to believe he has been met with foul play.
Osborne, 36, has been missing since last Wednesday.
That night, he told his 13-year-old son that he was going for a walk. He hasn’t been seen since.
“If you could imagine what hell is like, that’s where we’ve been,” says his mother, Deanna Osborne.
Police have used ATVs, dogs, a drone and a boat as they’ve searched for Osborne. Friends have also organized volunteer searchers.
While much of the search activity has focused on areas around the Grand River – which runs near Osborne’s home near Spruce and Jarvis streets in Brantford – it has also gone as far afield as Waterford.
“We’re at a loss to say specifically where to look,” says Osborne’s father, Kendrick Osborne.
Police describe Osborne as white, 5’10” and 190 pounds, with a medium build, a shaved head and a brown beard.
He was last seen wearing a black Sons of Anarchy hoodie, black-and-grey checkered pyjama pants, a black Metal Militia baseball hat and white K-Swiss running shoes, while carrying a black-and-grey Duck Commander backpack.
