St. Albert RCMP and RCMP Major Crimes Unit appeal for information in missing senior investigation

St. Albert RCMP and the RCMP Major Crimes Unit are asking for the public's help in finding a missing senior citizen from St. Albert.

Ronald Worsfold, 75, was last seen on July 7 at a residence in St. Albert. After no contact with him, his family reported him missing on July 9. It is out of character for Ronald to not contact family and the disappearance is considered suspicious.

Ronald is described as:

  • 5'6" tall (168 cm)
  • 145 lbs (66 kg)
  • Brown eyes
  • Grey/brown hair
  • Last seen wearing walking shorts, white shirt and running shoes

Additionally, RCMP are asking for the public to report any sightings of Ronald's car which he reported stolen on July 2nd, five days before his disappearance. The car is a light-brown 2007 Toyota Corrolla with licence plate BUP-369.

Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Albert RCMP at 780-458-7700. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1.800.222.8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS (check your local Crime Stoppers [www.crimestoppers.ab.ca] for instructions on how). You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest(s), the recovery of stolen property, and/or a seizure of illicit drugs, you may be eligible for a cash reward.
