Adams was travelling alone without a guide and was known to be in the Manang region hiking the Annapurna circuit, according to his family.
Three Canadians—two women and one man—were rescued Thursday. At least four Canadians have been killed.
Adams' sister-in-law, Jocelyn Enns, says it's not like Adams to be out of touch.
"He was supposed to be in contact every three to four days at the most and he's been very good about being in contact on a regular basis, so it is unusual to not hear from him for this length of time," she said.
Enns says their family is hoping Adams simply hasn't been able to reach a phone or computer to make contact following the blizzard.
She says his wife Ria is very concerned.
Three other hikers from the B.C. Interior, who were also missing in Nepal, have been located safe and sound.
