Calgary police are hoping a Crime Stoppers re-enactment will help them find a man who vanished last month.

Bradley Worobeck, 27, finished his night shift as a bartender at the Palomino Smokehouse restaurant in downtown Calgary at about 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 17.

Half an hour later, he phoned his mother from the nearby King Henry VIII Pub to say he was heading home. Worobeck usually used Calgary Transit to return home, said Calgary police.

Worobeck's family and friends have not seen or heard from him since that phone call.

His mother, Sandy Worobeck, said the disappearance is out of character for her son.

"If I knew he was OK and he's just disappeared and he's going to come home, I can wait forever," she said Tuesday. "But if something has happened to him, which I'm feeling more as the days go on, I just want to find him."

Worobeck's family and police were on hand for the Crime Stoppers taping at the Palomino restaurant Tuesday morning.

"We've done extensive investigations into banking, hospitals, the medical examiner's office, the U.S. border, just to name a few, and at this point, we've found absolutely no information whatsoever to indicate where Brad may be," said Const. Scott Guterson, one of the investigators.

Worobeck is described as:

  • Six feet, one inch tall.
  • 180 pounds with a slim build.
  • Short, spiky brown hair and brown eyes.
  • Wearing black sneakers and a black pea coat.
  • Clean shaven.
  • No tattoos, piercings or glasses.

Sandy Worobeck said it took 11 days before police started an investigation, but Guterson said he can't speak to what happened before he was assigned the case.

In the last four months, Calgary police have received 1,800 missing persons reports and most of them turn up, said Guterson, admitting this case seems unusual.
