    Was he there on a Working Holiday Visa? Or just vacation?

    Wow, just the one pic and barely any details. No newspaper articles that I could find and no updates in 14 years? I did find a blog type site where someone claimed to know him and said he had been planning to go to the North Shore mountains that day (same area another tourist went missing - Tom Billings). I really wonder why there seems to have been no real efforts to find Robert?

    It's not entirely clear whether Robert was staying at "the backpackers hostel" (as per the NAPM article), or at the actual "Backpackers Hostel" as per a Vancouver Sun article:

    http://www.vancouversun.com/2011sunr...824/story.html

    As the story is local to Vancouver, I'm inclined to think the Vancouver Sun article is correct.

    Consider this rumour, or speculation because this info was found elsewhere, not a mns. Apparently written by someone who knew Robert..
    Fwiw
    They said he was quiet and clean-cut, not into drugs or heavy drinking and wanted to be a reporter. Had wanted to write about people in the downtown East Side and was possibly last seen at an internet cafe. He may have been planning to go to the North Shore mountain.
    speculation.
