MONTREAL - Now that a missing Montreal financial adviser has resurfaced and spoken out through a lawyer, victims are demanding further answers.

The whereabouts of Earl Jones has remained a mystery for weeks, but lawyer Jeffrey Boro says his client is in Canada and is co-operating with authorities.

Boro says Jones is alone, depressed and suicidal and the lawyer has agreed to speak with police on his behalf at some point over the next couple of days.

Quebec's securities regulator alleges between $30 million and $50 million is missing from accounts run by Jones.

Kevin Curran, whose mother was among the victims, says he asked Boro for a civilized meeting with Jones where he and several other victims can ask some important personal questions.

Boro says Jones initially disappeared in order to protect his family after he received telephone death threats from irate clients.

Jones has not been charged and there is no warrant out for his arrest.
