They say his family was aware that he had been staying in a camp outside Fort McMurray.

Police have been unable to find the man, who speaks English and French.

Charles Bastien, who is 55, most recently lived in Edmonton, but had also lived in Quebec and Ontario.

He is described as Caucasian with blond-grey hair and green eyes.

Bastien is five-feet-nine-inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds.

Police ask anyone who many know of his whereabouts to please contact the Wood Buffalo RCMP, local authorities or Crime Stoppers.
