Courtemanche was last seen wearing a blue and black plaid fleece coat, blue jogging pants and brown hiking boots. He had a headlamp with him.

Because Courtemanche is known to frequent trails and parks, police are asking people who use outdoor facilities in Langford to keep an extra close eye out.

Since his disappearance, police have followed up on several leads but have not found Courtemanche. Anyone with information is urged to contact their local police or Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
