02/21/10: Gregory Wry, 30, Fredricton, NB, Canada

Gregory David Wry, 30, left his residence Feb. 21, 2010 at 1 p.m. and hasn't been seen by his family since.

"He went for a drive and didn't come home," said Cpl. John Foster of the Woodstock Police Force. "It was a complete surprise to his family."

Police have determined that Wry stayed overnight at the Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel in Fredericton on the day he went missing but that was the last time his whereabouts have been confirmed.

Foster said there's no reason to suspect something bad has happened to Wry, but the fact he hasn't been seen in the meantime is baffling.

"It's been 10 days now; that's a long time," Foster said. "Our policy, as it is with most of the police forces in New Brunswick, is that on a missing person, we don't release it to the press until the family authorizes it and they just authorized it today."

Foster said Wry's status as a missing person has been made known to other police forces and border officials.

"All police across the country would know he's missing," Foster said. "Any border crossing in Canada or the United States would know that he's missing."

Wry is described as 5'8" tall, 140 pounds with brown, brush cut hair. He has green eyes and scruffy whiskers and was last seen wearing a ball cap, a jacket with leather sleeves and brown cloth patches, jeans and sneakers. The Woodstock man was driving a 2005 four-door Chevrolet Malibu, sandy brown in colour with New Brunswick licence plate GMS-732.

If anyone has information on Wry or his whereabouts, they are urged to contact the Woodstock Police Force at 325-4601 or N.B. Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

His family has set up a Facebook page.
