UPDATE: RCMP seek witness after man goes missing on Vancouver Island

Police in Parksville want to talk to driver of Chevy Silverado with Ontario plates

UPDATE: RCMP say the man associated with the white Silverado has been located.

“Oceanside RCMP thanks the public for their assistance with this aspect of the investigation,” said Sgt. Shane Worth.


The Oceanside RCMP want to speak with a man who they believe assisted Ottavio Cutillo, who was reported missing on Sept. 12.

The man was driving a white 2017 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. Investigators indicated he may have helped Cutillo, whose 2006 red Toyota Yaris with BC licence plates MS5 98N, may have broken down near the old train station on Alberni Highway in Parksville on the evening of Sept. 10.

Attempts to contact the registered owner of the Chevrolet Silverado have not been successful and we are asking the owner of the pickup truck to contact police so investigators can speak with him, said Sgt. Shane Worth of the Oceanside RCMP. If you are the owner of this pickup truck or see this pickup truck, please contact police.
