The Langley RCMP are asking for public assistance in order to locate Thomas Charles Brydges.

The 73-year-old is a suspect in the attempted murder of two Langley residents. He’s also wanted on a Canada-wide warrant issued by Corrections Canada.

The attempted murder took place on Monday, May 28, when Langley RCMP were called to an RV Park in Aldergrove.

The woman remains in critical condition and the man is expected to be released from the hospital shortly.

Brydges is described as an older Caucasian male, approximately 5’8″ tall, and weighing 150 lbs. He has grey hair and brown eyes.

When he was last seen, he was wearing a khaki shirt and khaki cargo pants.
