Nanaimo RCMP look for missing man with memory loss and mobility issues

Robert Gillies last seen at coffee shop in Departure Bay

The Nanaimo RCMP are asking the public to help locate a 57-year-old Nanaimo man.

Just before 8 p.m., Robert Gillies was reported to have not returned to his residence in the north Nanaimo area. He had left his supportive housing prior to a check in the early morning and was last seen at about 10:30 p.m. at a coffee shop in Departure Bay.

Gillies is 57 years old, 5-foot-10, 170 lbs., and has blonde hair. He was wearing a black jean jacket, and blue jeans.

Gillies has a noticeable limp with mobility issues and a medical condition that has left him with poor memory. He is new to Nanaimo and does not know the area. Supportive housing staff are concerned for his well-being and would like people to be aware and report to the Nanaimo RCMP if they locate him.

Anyone who sees Gillies is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-3245.
