RCMP in New Brunswick have confirmed a man reported missing from Upper Derby was spotted in Fredericton the same day he disappeared.
Police have released a new photo of 49-year-old Roger Colepaugh, who was last seen by his family at his Upper Derby home on Nov. 8.
They reported him missing Nov. 12 and have not heard from him since he disappeared.
Police say it is out of character for Colepaugh not to keep in contact with his family.
Earlier this week, police said they believed Colepaugh may have travelled to Fredericton.
Today they released a new photo of the man, taken from surveillance video at a banking machine at the corner of Queen and Carleton streets in Fredericton.
Police say Colepaugh was at the bank around 11 a.m. on Nov. 8.
He is wearing a black, down-filled jacket, jeans, black work boots and a grey leather ball cap in the video. He also appears to have several days’ growth of facial hair.
Colepaugh is described as a white man with brown hair and brown eyes. He is six-foot-one and weighs around 190 pounds.
Police say he may be driving a black 2010 Mazda pickup truck with New Brunswick licence number COD 802.
"We have no indication if Mr. Colepaugh is still in the Fredericton area, or if he's travelling somewhere else," says Blackville RCMP Cpl. Chuck Plaxton.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact their local police or District 6 RCMP in Blackville at 1-888-506-RCMP (7267).
