There is concern for the safety of a missing Shelburne County man who was arrested and released Sept. 9 on child pornography charges

Charles Cecil Slate, 44, from East Green Harbour, hasn’t been seen since Sept. 9 at approximately 5:25 p.m.  His family is very concerned about his current state of mind. Slate was arrested and charged on Sept. 9 by the RCMP Internet Child Exploitation Unit. He does not have a prior criminal history, and the concern is for his own safety, not that of the public's.

 Slate is described as five-foot-five and 134 pounds, has brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing camouflage pants, a plaid zip-up jacket and rubber boots. He is driving a red, four-door 2010 Hyundai Elantra, Nova Scotia license plate DJT-365, and was last seen on Highway 3 in East Green Harbour headed toward Highway 103.

Anyone with information regarding Charles Slate is being asked to call the Shelburne RCMP at (902) 875-2490, or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You may also text TIP202 + your message to 'CRIMES' (274637) or email Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca .
