Brian Aahern Missing – The woods in Miramichi, New Brunswick, are being combed through by people looking for an Alzheimer’s patient from New Brunswick who has been missing for four days. Cory Ahern, Brian’s son, stated that his father was last seen on foot on Saturday about 3 p.m. AT, following a social visit at the home of a neighbor. Brian was 76 years old at the time. “They said that they saw him cross the highway  and then enter the woods into the trail that he would have taken to go home,” Ahern said. “They said that they saw him enter the woods into the trail that he would have taken to go home.”
According to Ahern, the family homestead on Ahern Road was constructed in 1904 by his great-grandparents. The route leads directly to the homestead. According to him, the distance shouldn’t have taken more than roughly five minutes to cover on foot. However, his father was never able to return home. He has a sneaking suspicion that he went past the turn-off and continued straight, so venturing further into the forest. According to what he shared, his loved ones are really concerned.
“It’s been days since he’s eaten, and he hasn’t had anything to drink. His blood pressure and several cardiac problems both require medication, but he hasn’t been taking any of it. In addition to this, he was inappropriately suited for the cold, as he was only wearing a sweatshirt and not a jacket at all. Ahern has not given up hope, but he believes at this stage that the expedition may be more appropriately described as a recovery mission rather than a rescue mission.
“As the days pass, I believe there is a smaller and smaller chance that we will find him alive,” the person said. Ahern has made an appeal to the members of the community, asking for their assistance in the search. Despite the fact that members of the Miramichi Police Force and the Miramichi Ground Search and Rescue combed the area on Sunday and Monday, Ahern stated that the police told his mother that they wouldn’t be returning again to search for her husband of 48 years — a father of three and grandfather of four — until Saturday.
Constable Robert Frontain, who is the force’s spokesperson, stated that he was unable to comment on the matter. However, he did confirm that personnel will remain “on standby” until Saturday, unless fresh information or other clues become available before that time. According to him, “the search area was exhausted” on Sunday and Monday, when a number of officers and perhaps thirty members of the search team, together with some conservation officers, representatives of the Department of Justice and Public Safety, and an RCMP dog, went out to look for the missing person. According to him, a police drone was also utilized on Monday.
Frontain was unable to provide an accurate estimation of the size of the area that was searched. “We checked every area we could in those woods from where he was last seen,” he added, noting that Ahern wasn’t reported missing to police until Sunday afternoon. “We checked every area we could in those woods from where he was last seen,” he said.
It’s possible that we’ll be out there looking for days and days. The forest seems to stretch on for an unending amount of time. When asked what the police have to say to the family, who is already concerned that the police could be too late, Frontain responded, “Our thoughts are with them at this time.” “This is not an easy situation for… anyone,” the speaker said. Officials with Miramichi Ground Search and Rescue did not provide a comment in response to a request for one by Wednesday night.
