RCMP in Prince George are hoping the public, especially those using the backcountry can help solve a murder case.
In August police began a missing person investigation looking for Lloyd Sword. Police investigators have determined Sword met with foul play.
Police say when Sword vanished he was wearing a zip-up style black jacket, blue jeans, a dark grey t-shirt and running shoes.
Police believe Sword may have been disposed of somewhere in wooded areas around the city. They are asking hunters and other backcountry users will keep their eyes open for any sign of Sword. Police say be on the lookout for pieces of clothing, but they stress that the sooner anything is found the better. They say with the weather changing rapidly, any evidence that may be outdoors could be destroyed. They believe the evidence, if found quickly, could very well contain forensic evidence that could lead to a suspect.
Anyone who may come across anything suspicious should leave it where they found it and get in contact with RCMP immediately. If you have any other information as to Sword’s whereabouts contact police or crime stoppers.
