UPDATE: The body of Daniel Capp has been found.
Laval police are looking for a 57-year-old man who went missing last week after leaving work.
Daniel Capp was last seen at 11:30 p.m. on April 26 as he left his job as a forklift operator at Messagerie Dynamique, a periodical distribution company. He headed west on St. Martin Blvd. and hasn’t been heard from since.
When he never showed up at his LaSalle home, his wife of 24 years, Miranda Simonetti, contacted authorities.
“It's hard not to see my husband in the house,” said Simonetti. “We need him home.”
Police said there has been no activity on Capp’s credit or bank cards and investigators couldn’t locate him with his cell phone.
“Our investigators have different ways, different techniques that they use, in this case here all of them were used and up to now our detectives are hitting a brick wall essentially, so we're asking the public to concentrate on the car,” said Laval police spokesperson Franco Di Genova.
Capp drives a 2012 four-door blue Hyundai Sonata.
His family has organized search teams that are driving around Capp’s usual route home.
“He’s one of those solid family guys who goes to his job, comes home and takes care of his wife,” said sister Louise Capp.
Capp has told his family things weren’t going well lately.
“He hasn't been feeling well lately, he's been a bit down and everything else but when he talked to Mimi there was nothing extraordinary about it. He wasn't having a particular fight at work or anything even though he's having problems at work lately,” said his sister, who added that she isn’t giving up hope.
“Maybe he fainted, maybe he had a stroke, maybe he had a heart attack. He has high blood pressure.”
Capp is 5’9 and weighs 160 lbs. He has dark hair and glasses and was last seen wearing a light grey jacket and camouflage fleece shirt. He requires medication for his high blood pressure. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
