Police are looking for an Ottawa man who has been missing for three days.

Jehangir Balsara, 67, left his Kanata home on Monday, according to a family member. He was reached on the phone while out and said he was going to return home within 10 minutes, but never made it.

Balsara, a self-employed accountant, was driving a 2012 grey and brown Honda Civic with the licence plate BRCE 049.

He is described as an East Indian man, standing about six feet one inch tall with a heavier build. He has balding hair with a salt-and-pepper colour.

Police said he was last seen wearing a blue dress shirt, dark coloured pants and a blue windbreaker with a sailboat logo on the left breast of the jacket.

Balsara's family said this is out of character and that he does not suffer from health problems. They also said there has been no activity on his bank card and that his cellphone goes straight to voicemail. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ottawa police missing persons unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 2355, or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.
