For Immediate Release: 19-Oct-2021 @ 1:45 PM
MRU #: MP21R037

The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a missing 32-year-old male.

Robert Watson, 32, was reportedly last seen in the area of 106 Avenue and 96 Street on Monday, July 19, 2021, at approximately 12:30 p.m. and again at 1 p.m. It was reported to police that he was also seen at the Jasper Place Transit Terminal (157 Street and Stony Plain Road) on Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021, at approximately 12 p.m. After exhausting all other efforts to locate Watson, investigators are hopeful the public can assist.

Watson is described as 6’0” tall with a medium build. He has brown hair, blue eyes, wears glasses and sometimes has facial hair. Watson was last seen wearing a plaid sweater with a hood, a black hooded jacket and was reportedly carrying a beige cross body bag. Photos of Watson are included below.

Missing: Robert Watson, 32

It is unusual for Watson to be out of touch with family for this long. As a result, there are concerns for his well-being. Watson is believed to frequent the inner city, as well as the Stony Plain Road area. There are no indications to suggest foul play at this time.

Anyone with information regarding Watson’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Edmonton Police Service immediately at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
