Shelburne RCMP are looking for a 45-year-old man who hasn’t been heard from since July 12. His daughter says it's totally out of character for him to be gone this long without checking in.

Thomas Benjamin Foote, of Shelburne, N.S., was last seen leaving work around 2 a.m. Sunday at the Clearwater Lobster plant in Lockeport.

He was driving a grey 2004 Chevrolet Optra with Nova Scotia licence plate CPL-773.

Foote is described as a white man standing five foot five inches and weighing 140 pounds. He has salt-and-pepper hair and wears glasses.

His daughter, Nicole Foote, says there was a possible sighting of him later on Sunday, but the police have not confirmed it yet. She says there's no indication where he may have gone.

"I'm worried and a little bit scared," she says. "I've never gone this long without speaking to my father, or hearing from him, so it's definitely out of character and not normal."

Nicole Foote says the RCMP are working on some leads.

Anyone with information about Thomas Foote is asked to contact the Shelburne RCMP at (902) 875-2490 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
