Police are searching for a Red Deer man who failed to show up for the third day of his trial today.

Brent Robert Cameron, 26, was to appear in court this morning for closing arguments in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.

Cameron is accused of leaving the scene of a fatal collision to avoid prosecution and of public mischief when he reported his vehicle stolen following the collision.

Paul Gabriel Bertin, 18, was killed in a collision at 2 a.m. on Oct. 6, 2012, as he crossed Taylor Bridge just west of the city centre.

Cameron’s lawyer Glen Allen reported today that he did not know where his client was. Allen agreed to stay on as counsel in hopes that the trial can continue at a later date.

Cameron was on trial in front of Justice John Little.
