The brother of Edwin Christmas says it’s completely out of character for the missing Membertou man to disappear without a trace.
“He has six children who he loves very deeply, he’s a hard-working fisherman and he’s never done this before,” said Roddy Christmas, whose 39-year-old sibling has been missing for almost three weeks.
On Sunday, Christmas joined about 150 other concerned family members, friends and others for a walk to raise awareness about the mysterious disappearance of Edwin Daniel Christmas. Prior to the walk, Membertou elder Fiona Christmas led the gathering in a series of prayers. Then led by a police escort, the “Bring Edwin Back Home” walk made its way through the First Nation as the sound of beating drums reverberated across the community.
Edwin Christmas disappeared on Aug. 10 when he was last seen leaving his residence. The next day, Cape Breton Regional Police issued a public alert asking for help in locating the missing man. At the time, police noted that Christmas’s vehicle, a red Chevrolet Traverse, was also missing.
