People looking for a missing man want to know that he is OK.

Werner Bullerwell, 38, walked out of his Red Deer home on Saturday morning and drove away.

Bullerwell didn’t say a word when he left that morning, says his common-law wife Tracy Wilson, who was eating breakfast when he left.

“I didn’t look up. I don’t even know what he was wearing.”

Bullerwell called one of his friends later in the day and sent a text message to another friend on Sunday, said Wilson. Other than that, she has not heard a word from him.

It’s unusual for Bullerwell to just walk away like that, said Wilson. She and Bullerwell have been together for 13 years and own a home in Eastview.

Police investigating Bullerwell’s disappearance do not suspect any foul play, said Const. Sabrina Grunow, media liaison officer with the Red Deer City RCMP.

It’s possible that he needed some time to clear his head and does not want to be found, said Grunow.

If that is the case, she hopes he will get in touch with RCMP to let them know that he is OK. If he needs help, the RCMP will ensure that it is provided to him, she said. Police say Bullerwel may have gone to Lethbridge or North Battleford.

Bullerwell is 183 cm (six feet) tall and just under 180 kg (400 pounds). He has brown hair, green eyes and tan marks on his face from wearing sunglasses. He always wears a ball cap and he drives a dark brown 2005 Ford F150 pickup truck with Alberta licence EDE 469.

Employed as a surveyor, he may have an amber light mounted on the roof of his truck.

Anyone who has seen the missing man or his pickup truck is asked to contact Red Deer City RCMP at 403-343-5575. To remain anonymous, leave information online at www.tipsubmit.com or call Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222-8477.
