Vernon RCMP are asking for the public’s help in locating  a man who left a Vernon medical facility Dec. 20 without completing his treatment.

Police are concerned for the safety of Dale Chernenkoff, 30, and are requesting help so that he can receive necessary medical attention.

Chernenkoff is described as five-foot-10, 240-pounds, heavy-set with long blond/brown hair and he may have a slight beard.

Unfortunately, Vernon RCMP do not have a photo of Chernenkoff to help in identifying him.

He was last seen wearing a black leather coat.
