Jake Kermond, Australian teen, reported missing in Whistler
Hotel staff reported Kermond missing after finding his belongings abandoned
Police say Kermond was reported missing by hotel staff in Whistler when they discovered his belongings in his room appeared to have been abandoned.
Kermond had been in Whistler skiing since early March. He was last seen by front desk staff in the hotel lobby on April 26.
Ski boots there, but skis missing
Staff Sgt. Steve LeClair said police have been in contact with Kermond's parents in Australia and they have not heard from him.
"It looks like his belongings had been left there. His ski boots are there, his skis are not there ... We suspect that he was short of funds," LeClair said.
"One of the suspicions was that maybe he was attempting to sell his skis. But we don't suspect any foul play at this point."
He was last seen wearing a green baggy ski jacket, a black and white baseball cap and possibly black pants.
Anyone with information should contact the Whistler RCMP at 604-932-3044.
