Tom Billings Disappearance Continues To Stump Vancouver Police

VANCOUVER - Investigators are seeking clues to the whereabouts of a British tourist who vanished in Vancouver one year ago.

Police say they've received several tips about Thomas Billings that have prompted extensive searches of the North Shore, where he apparently wanted to go hiking.

But there has been no sign of the young man since Nov. 25, 2013, when he was observed in East Vancouver (at East Broadway near McLean Drive) at about 9 a.m.

Vancouver Police say most of Billings' belongings were left at a home where he was staying near that location, even though he was scheduled for travel to the U.S. at the end of last November and then return home to England on Dec. 7.

Family and friends have said the disappearance of the then-22-year-old is completely out of character.

Investigators released additional photos today hoping to jog someone's memory, and say the five-foot-seven, blond-haired, blue-eyed man was last seen wearing a black jacket and grey military-style pants.
