It has been a tense 24 hours for the family of a missing Halifax man.

Paul Couvrette hasn’t been seen nor heard from since Monday morning and his family is worried sick. They say it is out of character for the 43-year-old father of four to disappear.

“Devastating. I don’t know where he is,” says Couvrette’s girlfriend, Cindy Bremner. “I just want him to come home.”

Bremner says she last saw her boyfriend as she dropped him off at work around 7 a.m. Monday.

However, he never showed up for his shift at the gas station on Robie Street and when Bremner arrived to pick him up last night, he wasn’t there.

“I dropped him off at work and he must have left when I dropped him off,” she says.

“It’s the worst, not knowing where he is and if he’s OK,” says Couvrette’s sister, Cindy Deonarine. “And what would have prompted him to just leave without getting in touch with anyone?”

Couvrette’s family has reached out to his closest friends, but no one has heard from him, and efforts to contact him have been unsuccessful.

While Couvrette’s friends and family say his disappearance is completely out of character, police aren’t calling it suspicious.

“Right now we don’t suspect any foul play, but we are concerned about his wellbeing,” says Halifax Regional Police spokesperson Lauren Leal.

His family is also concerned about his wellbeing, including Couvrette’s four children.

“He cares so much for his kids, he’s always talking about how he could never picture leaving his kids, especially his two younger daughters, especially at a young age,” says his son, Chayse Couvrette. “And then for this? I don’t know, it’s just out of the blue.”

Chayse and his family are hoping Couvrette will hear their plea and come home soon.

“Just that if he’s watching, I love him and I want him to come home,” says Bremner. “I just want him to come home.”

Couvrette is described as a white male with a shaved head and scruffy beard. He is roughly six-foot-three inches and weighs 180 pounds. He also has tattoos down both arms and on his neck.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is being asked to contact police.
