Dwight went missing at approximately 3:00 p.m. January 7th, after he finished his shift at Hotline Steaming, located at 10628 Road 269.

Dwight has not been in contact with his family and friends, which his family describes as highly unusual. He is 47 years old, 6’1" in height, with a slim build. He has dark, collar-length salt and pepper hair, a moustache and wears glasses.

Constable Jackelynn Passarell says officers have been able to track Middleton’s actions up to 3:00 p.m. that day.

Passarell encourages anyone who sees a 2001 grey GMC Sierra Pickup Truck with B-C license of 9640FB, to contact the local RCMP detachment immediately.

Officers can be reached by calling 250-787-8140. Tipsters can also remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
