A missing Vernon hotel manager, drawing concerns from family and friends, has been found.

Vernon North Okanagan RCMP have confirmed locating Jay Rosenberger, who has been missing since last Friday.

“We can confirm that Jay has been located and is safe,” Spencer Allen announced Wednesday in the Missing: Jay Rosenberger Facebook group, consisting now of more than 5,000 members.

Allen wrote more information regarding Rosenberger’s disappearance will be provided at a later time.

Wednesday night, those close to the search said it was believed Rosenberger may have been in the Lower Mainland as recently as Saturday afternoon.

The 38-year-old man had been last seen where he works at the Village Green Hotel on Jan. 24, around 11 p.m.

“He was supposed to return to work and had plans with friends the next day but never showed,” his sister Holly Frances wrote on Facebook.

A GoFundMe campaign was launched Tuesday and $5,345 was raised of a $5,000 goal.

The money raised was to aid in the search efforts, including the costs of printing posters, accommodations for family and friends coming in from Edmonton and food and gas expenses.

A command centre was established at the Village Green Hotel and several businesses agreed to help with the search in any way they could.

Restaurants agreed to deliver flyers along with food orders and several other local businesses hung posters of Rosenberger in high-occupancy areas.

More information to come.
