The GoFundMe launched Sunday (July 10) said his last known location is north of Fairy Lake on a forest service road in Port Renfrew. The fundraiser has gathered nearly $15,000, well beyond its $12,000 goal.

Searchers are looking for Watters’ grey, 2010 F-150 with a B.C. plate PJ7 371. He is described as 5’10” and about 225 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or Central Saanich Police Service at 250-652-4441.
