    Interesting that sunglasses, boots, and winter jacket was not taken... But computer was...

    I am sure that LE has done so... But I wonder what they found when trying to "track" his computer?

    I hope he is found soon!

    The Banff Film Festival ran for a week starting October 26.

    I wonder how why they believe he may be headed west? Video somewhere? To enter Banff (national park), you must proceed on Hwy 1 (Trans Canada) through a pay station and either pay or show your park pass. You then proceed down the highway a bit and take an exit for the actual town of Banff where the festival was. However, if you are transiting the area to continue down Hwy 1, you do not have to stop and "check in."

    Banff is approx. one hour drive west of Calgary.

    Here is what our local weather looked like that day: http://www.wunderground.com/history/...q_statename=NA

    Boots you could have done without that day, but lack of a coat and sunglasses would be more concerning (maybe an extra pair in the car for driving? ETA: I reread article and it says he left behind his "favourite sunglasses.")

    I wonder if anyone knows if Michael was supposed to meet with anyone(s) at Banff?

    hArticle says he keeps in touch with family and friends via Facebook but I've so far been unable to find him on there. Anyone else?

    Gosh, silly me. Here it is: https://www.facebook.com/mike.gardne...on=friends_tab

    ETA: Dog in FB photo does not belong to him. Oops. He does mention having a friend in Vancouver though. Could he be there? (continue west along Hwy 10 for another 10 hours and that's where you'll be).

    Link above reports last time anyone "heard" from Michael was Tues, October 29th...

    I wonder who and when was the last person to "see" him?

    Are there video cams at the place that he lives?

    BBM; Yes! Good catch. Now, I know we have some that monitor traffic and road conditions (live feed) and then the CPS ones that are watching for infractions.

    I have not yet been able to figure out where in the city he lives. I don't see any FB "action" about this at all.

    His cousin says judging by the way Gardner left his home it's as if "he was leaving for a long time".

    Thanks, Attraversiamo, for the info. regarding Intersection cameras..

    No... I haven't found an address for Michael, either...

    I wish we had more information...

    Additionally... I was wondering what the cousin meant by the home was left as if he was planning on being gone for quite a while...

    she described this by saying that...

    - everything was neat and tidy...

    - Refrigerator and freezer were basically free of items...

    - Thermostat down to 17 degrees...

    BBM: This is what we also do (here in Calgary) when we are going away during the winter for more than a few days. The pipes will not freeze at that temp. but you will also not be left with a whopper of a heating bill to pay when you return. When you return, when you return .... IMO definitely, but if you weren't planning on returning, a burst pipe or large bill would be of no concern to you.

    The cousin is the only family member or friend I have seen speaking about Michael.

    I know I mentioned before about him possibly heading for the west coast. No winter coat or boots? Someone who is used to our harsher winters here in Alberta, could definitely do without those items in Vancouver or Victoria. Or at least purchase new, less "heavy-duty" versions.

    Taking both the ipad and computer makes me wonder about that business he had started recently.

    ETA: I have still never been able to track down who was the last person to actually see Michael. What was the last day he showed up for work?

    Just fyi, we had been having an amazingly mild fall season. It was unusual for us - warm and sunny and everyone's spirits were high. Just in those few days before Halloween, we had our first snowfall and the reality of a long winter ahead really hit.
