Sointula resident So Huy Tran has not been seen in more than two months and cops are looking for clues to his disappearance.

Port McNeill RCMP are requesting the public’s help in locating the missing 59-year-old who has not been seen or heard from in approximately 10 weeks.

Tran is a salal — a leathery-leaved shrub said to have medicinal purposes — harvester by trade and had been working in the North Vancouver Island area.

Police did an exhaustive search for the man before declaring him a missing person.

Tran, who is Vietnamese and speaks little English, is approximately 5-ft 1, weighs about 170 lbs. and has black hair and brown eyes.

Tran’s worried family — who reportedly contacted cops in early June — and the Mounties are requesting anyone with information on the whereabouts of Tran to contact the Port McNeill RCMP detachment at 250-956- 4441.
