Police seek Burlington man missing since Tuesday

Police, family and friends are asking for the public’s help finding a Burlington, Ont. man who went missing on Tuesday.

Janis Ozollapa of Burlington was last seen leaving his workplace on Weeping Willow Drive in Oakville, Ont. on Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. He was driving his vehicle — a black 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche with the personalized licence plate “OZOLLAPA.”

He has not been seen or heard from since. His vehicle has also not been seen. 

"This is very out of character … that he’d disappear like this," friend Karlis Blums told CBC News, noting Ozollapa has both a wife and a young daughter.

Loved ones are putting up posters in the area.

Ozollapa is 50, white, six feet tall and 170 pounds with a medium build. He has grey eyes, a goatee, is bald and speaks with a heavy Latvian accent. He was last seen wearing a T-shirt, blue jeans, brown Crocs and had a black laptop briefcase. 

Ozollapa, who works as a contractor, also has friends and work acquaintances in Toronto, according to Blums. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (905) 825-4747 x2310.
