Parents worried Nova Scotia man with anxiety, mental disabilities missing

HALIFAX — The parents of a 25-year-old man with intellectual disabilities who went missing from a Nova Scotia facility say they're worried their son's health is at risk.  

The couple says Landon Webb was last seen on Oct. 15 before he left the Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre in the Annapolis Valley.

Brenda Webb, 52, says her greatest concern is that her son may have an epileptic seizure while he's alone and nobody would be available to assist him.

She also says she wasn't told her son had been discharged from the facility until after he had left.

The mother says she fears her son made contact with illegal drug users during his unsupervised community visits and that he may have fallen under their influence.

The Department of Community Services says it can't comment on specific cases.

RCMP spokesman Const. Mark Skinner says police have had recent tips about Webb's whereabouts and are continuing to look for him in Kings County and the Stellarton area.
