Edmonton Police Service Continues Searching for Missing Man

Edmonton Police Service continues looking for a missing man 55-year-old man last seen Tuesday, Feb. 27.

Police have published new photographs of Dean Michael Roth and are appealing for people who were near his last believed whereabouts to review their video footage.

Roth was last seen around 77 Street and 10 Avenue NW, and his family reported him missing two days later.

Police now say Roth may have been walking Eastbound through the greenspace along Anthony Henday from 66 Street, and that he may have been heading to Highway 14 or beyond. 

“We are asking motorists to review their dash camera footage for images of Dean walking eastbound through the greenspace along the north side of Anthony Henday Drive between the hours of 3:20 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2024,” said Const. Matthew Broadfoot in a media release published Thursday.

“We are also asking people to check their properties that back onto green spaces for images or footage of Dean captured on CCTV, during the specified timeframe on Feb. 27, as he could also be in rural areas east of the city,” said Broadfoot. “We are confident a motorist or resident may have seen him or may have footage that would be pertinent to our investigation.”

Roth is described as 5’5″, stocky, bald with a short grey beard, which may have been shaved off. Roth was last seen wearing a quilted dark navy-blue jacket, black pants, short black rubber boots, sunglasses, and a dark-colored baseball cap, police said.
