Police exploring the possibility that Paul Couvrette has left the province

The sudden disappearance of a 43-year-old Halifax man has his family worried and baffled about why and how he vanished early Monday morning.

Paul Couvrette has not been seen since he left his home on Isleville Street in the city's north end at 8:00 p.m. on Monday.

Police have received a number of reports of possible sightings from the public. Investigators are exploring the possibility that Paul is no longer in the province.

"He's a wonderful guy…and we are all really worried. We have no clue," said Couvrette's partner, Cindy Bremner.

As the tall tattooed man working behind the counter at Robie Street Irving, Couvrette is recognizable.

He's close to six feet three inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds with a shaved head and a scruffy beard.

"Because of his personality people remember him," said Bremner.

"My fear? I'm afraid that something has happened to him, that he's hurt, because he hasn't contacted us."

Both the Halifax police and Couvrette's family are looking for him.

Police said Couvrette's disappearance seems out of character.

They've receieved a number phone calls of sightings and are chasing leads, said police spokeswoman Lauren Leal.

Those close to Couvrette said they hope he contacts one of his four children or another member of his worried family.
