UPDATE: Home turned command centre in search of missing West Kelowna man

Central Okanagan Search and Rescue brought in the Penticton team to help search on Feb. 3

Update 4 p.m.

Sean Kraus and Nathalie Singer are pleading for their son to come home.

Lucas Singer-Kraus was last seen the evening of Jan. 31 at his home on Scott Crescent in West Kelowna. The couple said it is very out of character for Lucas to just disappear.

The family’s home has become a command centre in the search for the 23-year-old man. Lucas’ parents are asking everyone to assist how they can, especially as the volunteers who have been searching get tired and others return to work during the week.

“In his own quiet way he’s very resilient,” Sean said of his son. The couple keeps hopeful in knowing the weather hasn’t been extreme and that Lucas is a stubborn man.

Anyone looking to help in the search can contact Sean at 514-466-6226. The family has been posting updates on a Facebook page called ‘Help Search for Lucas’.

Lucas’ family is extremely grateful for the help they have received thus far, having friends, neighbours, and strangers all step up. A few people with drones have also offered to help.

Anyone with information on Lucas’ whereabouts or who believes they have seen Lucas is asked to call West Kelowna RCMP and reference file 2024-5574.
