Halifax Regional Police continue to look for Ryan James Jessop, one year after he disappeared.

Jessop was last seen on the evening of Sept. 27, 2020 in the Dartmouth Crossing area.

"He has not been seen by family or friends since that time and has had no contact with anyone even though previous to his disappearance he was active on various social media platforms," says the province's crime rewards program.

Halifax Regional Police launched a missing person investigation on Oct. 14, which led to a search of a wooded area near Finlay Drive and Shubie Drive.

When last seen, Jessop -- who was 32 at the time -- had been wearing a blue track suit and a black puffy Guess vest.

He's described as white, 5'10" and 175 pounds with dark brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information about his disappearance is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016.
The case is also part of the Nova Scotia Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program, which offers up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. All calls to 1-888-710-9090 are recorded and those who come forward need to provide their name and contact information, and could be called to testify in court.
