ROQUE BLUFFS, Maine — Authorities used search dogs on Monday as they continued to look for a missing Canadian man.

This was the third day of the search for Torray Wallace, 36, of Fredericton, New Brunswick, who was reported missing to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police on Wednesday, Feb. 23. Wallace is described as being a black male with glasses, 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, yellow hooded sweat shirt, black jacket and brown work pants.

The two canine units searched the area around Roque Bluffs State Park for two hours Monday morning but found nothing, according to an e-mail from Sgt. David Craven of the Maine Warden Service.

The search began Saturday after authorities were alerted to an abandoned vehicle located at the park late Friday afternoon. The beige 1999 Chevy Lumina had New Brunswick plates registered to Wallace.

Teams from the Maine Warden Service, Maine Marine Patrol and a U.S. Coast Guard vessel searched the area near the park Saturday and Sunday with no results.

The Warden Service plans to continue to conduct daily searches of the beach and surrounding areas.

Anyone with information about Wallace’s whereabouts can contact the Maine State Police in Orono at 866-2121 or 800-432-7381.
