The disappearance of a local man has been added to the province's crime rewards program.

Ryan James Jessop was last seen on the evening of Sept. 27, 2020 in the Dartmouth Crossing area.

Jessop, who was 32 at the time, had been wearing a blue track suit and a black puffy Guess vest with white lettering on it.

Before his disappearance, he had been active on various social media platforms, but since that time, he hasn't had any contact with anyone.

Halifax Regional Police launched a missing person investigation on Oct. 14, which led to a search of a wooded area near Finlay Drive and Shubie Drive.

Jessop is described as white, 5' 10", around 175 pounds with dark brown hair, green eyes with various tattoos. 

Investigators believe that there are people who may have information about Jessop's disappearance, which could lead to arrests and possible charges.

Now that the case has been added to the province's crime rewards program, those with tips leading to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible are eligible for a reward of up to $150,000.

"We hope by adding this case to the rewards program we will receive new information that could help provide family members and other loved ones with answers," said Attorney General and Minister of Justice Randy Delorey in a news release. 

"I urge anyone with information about Mr. Jessop's disappearance to please come forward. No tip is too small."

All calls to the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090 are recorded. Those who come forward have to provide their name and contact information, and may be called to testify in court.

Those who want to remain anonymous can submit a tip through Crime Stoppers.
