The family of a Winnipeg man who has been missing since Monday is desperate to find their loved one who disappeared after getting off work.

"We're very distraught right now," Robert Hadath told CBC Thursday.

His brother Scott Hadath has been missing since Monday afternoon when he got off work around 3 p.m. from his job at Canadian Tire on Fermor Avenue.

Winnipeg police and Manitoba RCMP are now searching for the missing 39-year-old.

"This is just not something that you'd expect from Scott," his brother said. "It's just out of character for him, so we have no idea what to think at this point.

"He's very reliable."

Hadath, who lives with his mother in the Windsor Park area of Winnipeg, said family started to get worried after his brother didn't show up for work on Tuesday and they couldn't get in touch with him on his cellphone.

'Quite the emotional roller-coaster'

"Generally if he would go out, he would go out maybe for a couple hours, right, and then he'd be back," Hadath said.

Hadath said friends and family have searched everywhere they can think Scott might be, including the Whiteshell area, where his family owns a cabin, and are desperate to find him.

"It's quite the emotional roller-coaster," he said.

Scott Hadath is described as 5-foot-10 with a heavy build, a beard and hazel eyes.

He is believed to be driving a 2015 black Mini Cooper with the Manitoba licence plate number HJB 662.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the Winnipeg police missing persons unit at 204-986-6250.
