  • Print

The search for a missing Ontario man has expanded to Winnipeg after his vehicle was found abandoned in the city’s West End.

Brandon Wheeler, 30, was last seen on Apr. 15 in Windsor. He was reported missing the following day after he didn’t show up for work.

Family members have publicly expressed concern for his well-being, telling local media outlets they believe him to be suicidal and possibly headed west.

On Friday, Winnipeg police revealed Wheeler’s 2010 Jeep Wrangler, with Ontario lience plate ALPD 512, has been located. No other information was released, including specifically when or where.

Police have now issued a news release asking for help in locating Wheeler, who may be in the city. He is Caucasian, 6-foot-4, with a skinny muscular build, short brown hair, hazel eyes and pierced ears. He may be wearing a dark leather jacket, t-shirt, jeans and sunglasses.

Anyone with information on Wheeler is asked to call police at 204-986-6250.

Wheeler’s family and friends have set up a Facebook page filled with updates and information.
