Nanaimo RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing 77-year-old man.
According to police, Joseph William Lozoff has not been seen or heard from since January of 2018.
Workers at the Salvation Army New Hope Centre contacted police in March to report that Lozoff would attend their centre on a daily basis but for unknown reasons, in January, he suddenly stopped attending.
The workers at the centre could not provide many details other than to say he is known to use public transit and that his lifestyle could be described as transient.
Investigators have been unable to find any family or friends who could say where he might be.
Lozoff is described as a white male, and the picture (above) is of him five years ago. He stands 6 ft. 3, weighs about 205 pounds and is bald with some grey hair, and has blue eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to remain anonymous.
