Original story:

Colleagues of a man missing since Saturday provide more details as a search begins in Hiawatha.

Igor Dragoslavic, a 58-year-old who works as the operations director of Transitions Bike Parks in Kitchener, was last seen Saturday by family members around 8 a.m. in Block 100 of Pentagon Boulevard.

According to Cindy Pruce of the Sault Cycling Club, Dragoslavic has been in town since early September assisting with the Finn Hill Mountain Bike project.

Pruce explains that trail building for the project would begin next week or the week after, and she says Dragoslavic spent time plotting the new trail in Hiawatha.

“He was just at Hiawatha exploring some of the other new trails based on the sounds of it,” she says.

Several police cruisers and a mobile commando unit have been standing in the parking lot of the Soo Finnish Nordic Ski Club since early this morning.

Chris Dewar, the president of the Kitchener-based bike company and a close colleague of Dragoslavic, says his vehicle is an older black Honda CR-V.

Pruce says that the OPP is now involved in the situation and that she will go to Hiawatha to help with the search.

“If there are people willing to help with the search, the OPP is looking for people to check in around 10 a.m. this morning, or whenever they can come,” she says. “They’re going to give people grids to help them search”
