Kurtis Andrew Alderliesten has been located.


The Kelowna RCMP is seeking public assistance in locating a missing man.

Kurtis Andrew Alderliesten was last seen on Oct. 21 in the Vernon area. The RCMP’s investigation has led officers to look into Alderliensten’s desire to travel to Vancouver Island through Princeton.

Alderliesten is without access to medication he requires, according to RCMP.

“Without this medication, his behaviour may become unpredictable and pose a risk to himself and others,” said Const. Hilditch, missing persons coordinator for the Kelowna RCMP. “If you see Kurtis, please do not approach him, rather call 911.”
