Family and friends of Greg Vinnish are concerned about his safety and are using Facebook in an attempt to locate him.
Vinnish a former Mission resident who moved to Abbotsford two years ago, left his home at 7 a.m. this morning (July 6) and hasn’t been seen since. However, at about 11 a.m. he left a post on Facebook which his brother, Steven, described as a suicide note.
“He has a history of depression and we are anxious to find him,” said Steven.
It is believed that Vinnish, 26, is probably in a rural area, possibly on a Forest Service Road.
“His passion is hiking,” said his brother, adding that he would often go on long hikes with his dog, but never over night.
“Not by himself, I can’t think of a time that he would go over night alone.”
The Abbotsford Police and Mission RCMP have been informed, as have the authorities in Chilliwack, Agassiz and Maple Ridge.
Steven said a rifle is missing from his brother’s home and he may have it with him, creating more concern for family and friends.
Vinnish drives a gold/tan 2001 GMC Sierra with the license plate KJ 2633.
If you see him or his vehicle, call the local police immediately.
