Kingston Police detectives are continuing in their attempts to locate Shawn CRICKARD, who hasn’t been seen by his family since September 4.

Some tips have been received in various areas around eastern Ontario but have yet to lead to a positive identification and safe return of Shawn.

Detectives have obtained and are releasing the last known photos of Shawn obtaining fuel for his blue/purple 2002 Chrysler Sebring, with Ontario licence plate BNXM 195. On Thursday, September 4 at approximately 6:00 a.m. he attended the Petro Canada gas station located at 1586 Centennial Dr, near Gardiners Rd and Highway 401. He can be seen wearing black sunglasses, a gray t-shirt, black athletic pants with white striping near the pocket line, and beige or brown sandals.

Original release:

Detectives are looking for assistance in locating a 32-year-old Kingston resident who has not been seen by friends and family since the beginning of September.

Shawn CRICKARD was last observed leaving his family residence in the west end of Kingston on Thursday, September 4 at approximately 5:45 a.m. He was driving a blue four-door 2002 Chrysler Sebring with Ontario licence plate BNXM 195.

He had former work connections in Newburgh just north of Napanee, but Kingston Police have also recently received some information of possible activity relating to CRICKARD in the Newboro and Westport area. Family members also advise he has friends and job relations between Kingston, Cornwall and Ottawa.

On his left arm he has a band, a Celtic cross and the word “Raiders.” On the middle of his back is a tribal solar symbol. On his ankle is a “Dropkick Murphys” logo.

Anyone with information is please asked to contact Detective Blair Watt at 613-549-4660 ext 6320 or via email at bwatt@kpf.ca.
