Police continue to seek public’s help in locating missing man

Investigators continue to seek the public’s help locating a missing Halifax man, who we originally reported as missing on May 11.

Sixty-year-old Joseph Stanley Amiro was last seen on Sunday May 1 at 8:41 p.m. leaving the QEII Health Sciences Centre. Joseph was reported missing to police on the evening of May 8.

It was initially it believed that Joseph walked to Gerrish Street after leaving the QEII Health Sciences Centre. However, it has now been learned Joseph obtained a Halifax Transit bus ticket at the hospital and may have boarded a bus in front of the QEII on Robie Street. Police are wishing to speak with anyone who may have seen a man with a cane matching Joseph’s description in that area on May 1.

Joseph is described as a white man, 5’, thin build, with grey hair and grey facial hair on his chin. He was last seen wearing a green jacket and blue jeans. He walks with a copper coloured cane with black electrical tape on the bottom.

There is no information to suggest that Joseph has met with foul play, however, it is unusual for him to be out of contact with family and friends for this period of time. Joseph takes medication for a medical condition and has not renewed this medication since he was reported missing. Police continue to be concerned for Joseph’s well-being and request that he or anyone with information on his whereabouts calls police at 902-490-5020.
