Lunenburg County RCMP is asking the public for help in locating a missing 64-year-old man.

David Lewis Foster was recently spotted in Lunenburg County in Parkdale after having not been seen since 8 a.m. on October 7 when he left his Scarsdale home. Scarsdale is near Barss Corner in the northern part of Lunenburg County.

According to a October 10 press release from the RCMP, a citizen found Foster inside his vehicle on a logging road off Barss Corner Road after 5 p.m. on October 9. When Foster was approached he fled into the woods by foot.

On October 10, Foster was again spotted by a citizen, this time on foot in the Scarsdale area.

Lunenburg County RCMP Police Dog Services and a Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources helicopter has been called in to assist in the search for the man. Police say they, and family, are concerned for the man's well-being.

Foster is a white male, 5'11 feet tall, 175 pounds, and has dark brown/grey hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a dark fall jacket, blue jeans, tan work boots, a black ball cap and glasses.

RCMP are urging anyone with information on Foster's whereabouts to contact the Lunenburg County district RCMP at 902-883-7077 or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to report anonymously.
