Police need the public's help to find a 42-year-old Hamilton man who has been missing since Thursday morning.

Just before 6 a.m., Jason Simon told his wife he'd pick up breakfast for them at a local restaurant. When he didn't come back to their Locke Street home, his wife called police.

Simon was last seen near Macassa Lodge at 701 Upper Sherman Avenue. He has an orange tent  he may be carrying and had been recently camping in the Gage Park/Rail Trail area. Police and his family are worried and need tips from the public to help find him.

Simon has a medical condition and needs medication multiple times a day. He took his morning medication but needs more throughout the day.

Simon is a white male, 5'8” to 5'9” and 310 pounds. He has dark hair with a  receding hairline, no facial hair, a missing front tooth and numerous tattoos on both arms, including a totem pole that runs the length of his right arm.

He was last seen wearing a dark blue Nautica T-shirt with a black hoodie over top, black pants and white running shoes.

Anyone with information should call police at 905-546-4925 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
