AAP logoAAP 23/10/2016

Police have made a public appeal for help to find a French-Canadian backpacker who disappeared more than five months ago in Cairns.

Maxime Gagnon, 29, was last seen at a backpackers hostel on the Cairns esplanade at the end of May, though police have received reports he may have been at a Brisbane backpackers in July.

Police and family in Canada are concerned for his safety because the disappearance is out of character, though they say it is possible he remains within the backpacking community and looking for work.

Anyone with any information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
