A Hamilton man, who is nonverbal due to a medical condition, was reported missing on Thursday afternoon (Dec. 16).

The Hamilton Police Service says that 38-year-old Robert (Robbie) Atkinson was last seen around 4:30 p.m. in the Lawrence Road and Rosedale Avenue area, near his family home. Robert is a white man who is five-foot-four with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a green jacket with black markings, grey pants, a yellow-and-blue tuque and green running shoes.

In October, a community effort helped locate Robert after he was reported missing. At that time, the HPS related that he lives with Down syndrome and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.

If any person has information or sees Robert (Robbie) Atkinson, they should call the Division 2 Staff Sergeant immediately at 905-546-2963.
