Family and friends of Jonathan Knight are turning to the public in hopes of locating the Prince Rupert man.

Knight was last seen on May 7 and his vehicle was located the next day on Highway 16 at Telegraph Point. After being released by RCMP those looking in the vehicle located a receipt for a seven-foot inflatable boat with a foot pump and fire starter. A further hint was found when Knight's hat was located at a boat launch downstream.

Coupled with recent research he had been doing on the Skeena River, led friends to believe he had attempted to cross the river. RCMP have been conducting searches near the boat launch and along the Skeena River, but have yet to locate Knight.

Knight is described as caucasian, in his mid-20s and was last seen with short hair and a goatee. Although his hairstyle may have changed from the provided photo, friends note Knight has a distinguishable stain on the front of his teeth.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-627-0700.
