    Sorry to hear about this and I hope he's ok. I don't live in the area otherwise I'd be lookin. If you haven't already, you might wanna try posting this in the long distance cycling forum, commuting, and the regional one.

    +1 and put it in all the forums. Cover all the bases. You never know who may have seen him on his route.

    sth, I hope this man is found in good shape. I have done a little bike camping and always worried about the evil people we share the planet with. I hope this is not his fate.

    According to the attached RCMP news release, Ed was reported missing early in November. Lots of people routinely go for long periods without contacting others. There is nothing indicating anything sinister has happened. His family just wants to know he is safe.

    I can't imagine cell coverage is super good there either. I do hope he has been found and is well.
