An Edmonton man is searching for his father in Central America after he went missing from his home in Belize on Christmas Day.

Brian Townsend, a Canadian missionary living in a small village in Belize, has been missing since Dec. 25, said his son, Kory Townsend, on a Facebook page where concerned friends and family have been waiting for news of his whereabouts.

Kory said his father’s small apartment in Valley of Peace, just outside of Belmopan, was found in disarray with “signs of an aggressive struggle that carried out the door and across the lawn to where his truck was parked.”

His father’s truck was also missing, he said.

“This is a rescue. If not for my father then for our sanity,” wrote Kory before his Dec. 28 flight to Belize to begin a search.

“I go as a courageous, confident ambassador for all of us that know Brian Townsend and wish to see him safe.”
