Bennett is described as six foot, 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing blue Levis jeans, olive green Volcom jacket and black shoes.

Police are concerned for Bennett’s health and well-being and friends and family report that it is out of character for him to be out of contact for this long.

Const. Nancy Saggar of West Shore RCMP said any missing persons investigation is a concern for police. She also noted that it has been four days since Bennett’s disappearance was reported.

“We’re definitely investigating all avenues at this point,” Saggar said. “We don’t have anything to point towards this being criminal in nature or any foul play but it’s definitely out of character so at this point we are concerned for his safety and well-being.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact their local police, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
