Lethbridge Police officials said Thursday that LPS has assumed carriage of the investigation into a 26-year-old Calgary man who has been missing since mid-November.
Marshal Iwaasa was last seen by family in Lethbridge on Nov. 17. Iwaasa told family he was returning to Calgary, however, he has not been seen or heard from since.
On Nov. 25, a burned-out vehicle was located in the B.C. backcountry by Pemberton RCMP who confirmed it belonged to Iwaasa. Family were notified of the recovery of the vehicle and subsequently reported Iwaasa missing.
RCMP initiated a search of the area but efforts were suspended last week due to extremely poor weather conditions.
Iwaasa is described as five-foot-11 inches tall, approximately 170 pounds with brown eyes, shoulder-length brown hair, usually worn tied back, and a mustache. When last seen, he was wearing a green hoodie, grey toque, red hi-top shoes and black pants.
His truck is described as a dark blue 2009 GMC Sierra, bearing Alberta licence plate BLL-1099.
