Hamilton Police Still Searching for Brandon Pollock

Hamilton Police continue to search for a missing 31-year-old Hamilton man who was last seen in mid-September 2019.

On September 10, 2019, shortly after 4:00 a.m. Brandon Pollock was seen leaving his residence in the area of Herkimer Street and Caroline Street in Hamilton. That same day, 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 again advised 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 video and photos. The family has viewed the video and photos, and believe the male in the video was Brandon.

This was out of character for Brandon and there is a concern for his well-being.
