Brandon Pollock

On September 10, 2019, shortly after 4:00 a.m. Brandon Pollock’s mother heard him leave the family residence in the area of Herkimer Street and Caroline Street in Hamilton. Brandon often leaves at that time to clear his head but always returns home a couple of hours later. Brandon did not show nor did he attend school that day, subsequently resulting in his mother becoming concerned and reporting him missing. On September 10, 2019, three males on a boat observed a male swimming near the lift bridge in Lake Ontario, about 1 km off the shoreline, directly in the middle of the boat channel. The boaters went over to check on his well-being. The swimmer advised that he was okay and waved them on. The boaters drove by a second time as their instincts indicated that this was not normal and recorded their conversation with the male. The male advised again that he was okay and encouraged the boaters to move along. Later that evening, the boaters observed the media release/photo about the missing male and immediately called police to provide them with video and photos. The family has viewed the video and photos, and believe that the male in the video is Brandon.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Acting Detective Sergeant Lisa Chambers at 905-546-3833.
