The Haliburton Highlands OPP is searching for a Bowmanville man who investigators believe disappeared because of foul play.

Officials say 47-year-old David Palmer was last seen on October 2nd, 2015.

They say two weeks after, officials recovered his car near the Village of Haliburton.

Palmer is described as a white male, 6′ tall, and has brown hair, and blue eyes.

Beginning today, OPP will be searching an area north of the Village of Haliburton, in relation to Palmer.

As this search continues, police are seeking further help from the public during the course of upcoming cottage season.

The public is encouraged to report any suspicious items they may locate or any changes in the landscape since last fall.

The public is asked not to touch or move any items they find and to contact police immediately.
