Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said Friday afternoon that Carl Hubert Rowe has been safely located.


A man moving from Chilliwack to Penticton was reported missing and RCMP were asking for the public’s assistance in locating him.

Carl Hubert Rowe, 48, was last seen on Sept. 26. Rowe was supposed to meet his wife at the Chilliwack bus depot on Sept. 29 but never showed up. Rowe is described as five-foot-eight tall, 141 pounds, medium-toned skin and short brown hair. He was last seen wearing a yellow jacket with white arms and a shirt underneath, a black toque with the word “Jesus” on the front, blue jeans and had a black backpack. RCMP said the man was also wearing expensive-looking court shoes or hiker style shoes with silver on them. Rowe is known to wear lots of jewelry, on occasion a red rosary and clothing with “Jesus” written on it.

“Police have contacted some of his family members and his friends, however they have not heard from him,” said Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth, media relations for the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment. “He is on medication and has not refilled his prescription. He does not have a drivers licence or a vehicle. It is believed that he may have a pay-as-you-go cell phone.”

RCMP have information that Rowe has family in Edmonton and has connections to Merritt, Hope and Nanaimo.

“Police have not yet been able to determine his whereabouts. The RCMP and family members are concerned for his safety,” said Hollingsworth.

Anyone with information on Rowe is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
