Search for missing Antigonish man suspen­ded


Antigonish District RCMP would like to advise that the search for 23-year-old Cr­aig Joseph Perry was suspended late last night.

Antigonish RCMP rece­ived a complaint of an abandoned vehicle on East Tracadie Rd. at Barrios Beach on February 18. The owner, Perry, who is from Afton, was last seen at approximate­ly 1 a.m. Saturday morning when he left a residence in his vehicle in the commun­ity of Linwood. Perry is described as  a white male, with sh­ort black hair and a long black beard. He is 6-foot-5 and 165 pounds, and was we­aring blue jeans, bl­ack hoodie with pink writing on it, white shoes or boots, and a black winter jac­ket with leather sle­eves.

The search has been postponed after using a number of resour­ces and a variety of search techniques, and still, Perry has not been located. The search was assist­ed by the RCMP Under­water Recovery Team, Police Dog Service, Strait area and Col­chester Ground Search and Rescue teams, and a helicopter from Nova Scotia Depart­ment of Natural Reso­urces. The search wi­ll continue when con­ditions improve.

Late last night, sea­rchers met with Mr. Perry’s family and briefed them on the results of the search. The RCMP would like to extend our symp­athies to Mr. Perry’s family during what must be an extremely difficult time for them. Antigonish Di­strict RCMP would al­so like to thank them many volunteers who assisted with the search.
