The ongoing investigation has revealed Tarbet was last known to be in the area of Bear Creek, driving his 2018 black Ford Explorer. While there are many forest service roads in the area, heavy police canvassing has not resulted in locating Tarbet’s vehicle.

“Police are deeply concerned for Mr. Tarbet’s well-being and he may be in possession of firearms,” said Cpl. Meghan Foster of the West Kelowna RCMP.

“Should anyone see this vehicle, or Mr. Tarbet, please do not approach him and immediately contact 911.”

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Glen Tarbet is urged to contact the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
