The family of a missing Australian backpacker is travelling across B.C. to search for the 24-year-old.

Owen Rooney was last seen in the Grand Forks Hospital in mid-August. He left on his own, leaving his belongings behind.

Rooney’s relatives are now in B.C. and are attempting to retrace his footsteps.

“Police are not aware if Owen left the Grand Forks area to make his way back to his last known address in Kelowna,” Const. Dan Moskaluk said in a news release.
