Police are hoping to speak with any transit users or residents who may have seen Smith on that day.

Smith is described as 32 years old, 5’11” tall, 150 lbs. with a slim build, light skinnned with a fair complexion and shoulder length dark hair.

Smith is known to camp in the woods in the Silver Valley area. An extensive search of the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest was conducted by Maple Ridge Search and Rescue but Smith was not located.
