Police in Nanaimo are hoping the public can provide information that will help locate a missing man.

According to a Nanaimo RCMP press release, Sajed Haddadi, 26, has not been seen since Oct. 1. His family told investigators he has never gone anywhere without informing them of his plans and because of this, they are worried for his safety.

Haddadi stands 5-feet-6, weighs 140 pounds and has short, dark, curly hair.

The picture provided is recent, police say.
