The parents of an outdoor enthusiast from Israel have come to B.C. to look for their son, whom they haven't heard from since late June.

Avichai Fisher, 29, arrived in Montreal on June 23. His family says they last heard from him on June 27 when he said he was on his way to go rock climbing in Squamish, B.C.

"We tried phoning him, his phone seemed to be disconnected," said his younger brother Gitai Fisher.

"It's probably been the longest he has been without contacting anyone, so we're just getting worried."

Fisher said his brother is an experienced outdoorsman and should be well prepared.

North Vancouver RCMP say they've "conducted numerous checks into his possible location," but they have yet to find him. 

Fisher is described as six feet two inches with a slim build, brown hair, and brown eyes. He also wears glasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311.
