Hunt expands for missing student

UPDATED: 2006-08-19 17:50:01 MST

Family wants Calgarians to be on lookout


The family of a young man who disappeared in Edmonton want Calgarians to be on the lookout.

Christopher Barrington Leigh, whose 20-year-old brother Robert has been missing from Edmonton for a week, said the family has expanded their search to include Calgary.

“We’re back to thinking broadly and Calgary is one of the first places we’d look,” he said, adding his brother has friends in the city.

Edmonton police called off the ground search for Barrington Leigh on Friday after no signs of the University of Toronto math student or his bike were found.

But Christopher said investigators have encouraged the family and volunteers not to give up.

“They’ve told us, don’t stop searching ... go wide,” he said.

“Now everything’s a possibility.”

Christopher said the family is also concerned the medium blue, older model, cliff hanger bike Robert had been riding the day he disappeared, could end up in Calgary.

“Bikes move back and forth between our cities in the stolen markets,” he said.

“The bike couldn’t just disappear.”

Finding the bike would be significant, he said.

“It would revolutionize the case.

“We have absolutely nothing right now.”

Robert, who was home from Toronto for the summer, had been spending his time with friends in both Edmonton and Calgary.

He was supposed to be headed to the Edmonton Folk Festival when he went missing on the night of Aug. 13.
