The missing person case of Maxwell William Brown is almost five-years-old now, and the Prince Rupert RCMP are asking for help.

“Maxwell William Brown was last seen on May 1, 2012 in Klemtu. An exhaustive search and investigation was completed but Brown was never located,” Sgt. Dave Uppal said in a release.

Brown, who is an Aboriginal male, is approximately five feet and ten inches with a slender build and short black hair. He had two visible tattoos on his neck — one was “Rest in Peace” and other was a raven.

As the RCMP approaches the five-year anniversary of his disappearance, they are asking anyone that may have information regarding his disappearance to contact the Prince Rupert detachment at 250-624-2136 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

As the Northern View reported in 2012, Brown was last seen around 1 a.m. on May 1 while visiting friends in Klemtu, a small community located on Swindle Island, approximately six hours south of Prince Rupert. He was reported missing on May 3 when his family had not heard from him.
