Another search for a man missing in St. John’s since Feb. 4 found no trace of him this weekend.

Josh Miller was reported missing Feb. 10, but was with friends on George Street during the early morning hours of the day before.  

When he was last seen by his friends, Miller was thought to be injured and ill prepared for February weather. After an altercation in which he was reportedly kicked in the head outside a George Street bar, friends put Miller into a cab by himself.

Miller, 20, was reportedly seen that morning in the Stavanger Drive and Blue Puttee Drive area of St. John’s. The RNC carried out an extensive search of the area for Miller at the time and since then, several searches for Miller have been conducted in the area as conditions have changed. Police have received tips, but none that panned out.

RNC Sgt. Hubert Hull was in charge of the most recent search on Saturday, which was conducted in wooded areas near Stavanger Drive and Snow’s Lane.

“Based on the spring weather that we’ve had in the past week, we’ve decided to do another major ground search in the area,” Sgt. Hubert said.

Fifty-seven volunteers from the Newfoundland and Labrador Search and Rescue Association gave their time Saturday. Six teams canvassed wooded areas until they had all been searched.

The RNC is still asking people in the area to check under anything they may have had covered for winter for signs of the missing man.

The RNC will continue to collect tips, as well as conduct searches.
