(UPDATE: Dec. 6 @ noon) - A 49-year-old Kelowna man is no longer considered missing.

It was a quick and positive conclusion to the search for Kelly Murphy, as the RCMP says he contacted his family after seeing his name in the news on Tuesday.

“The media attention generated yesterday was instrumental in receiving information regarding his whereabouts and well-being," said Cpl. Michael Gauthier. "Thank you to the media agencies and public for your assistance.”


(Original story: Dec. 5 @ 1 pm) - The Kelowna RCMP says there is great concern for the well-being of a missing Kelowna man, a little over a week after he went missing.

A friend and roommate of 49-year-old Kelly Murphy reported him missing on Sunday, Nov. 26, after he had not heard from or seen him in two days.

He told police that Murphy made “some concerning comments” before leaving their residence on foot.
