Gay Man Missing In Quebec!

Ian Lambert was last seen leaving a house party in the western part of the Plateau district at about 9 p.m. on Feb. 16.

Family and friends have started a Facebook group and are encouraging everyone to widely share the photos and posts.

They say Lambert walked across the Champlain Bridge to Ottawa the night he disappeared and was last seen in the area of Wellington West and Hintonburg a day later.

The posters describe Lambert as six feet two inches tall with brown hair and brown eyes.

According to police he was last seen wearing a tuque and a multi-coloured scarf draped over a brown dress coat. He was also carrying a backpack.

Gatineau police are asking anyone with information related to Lambert's disappearance to contact them at (819) 246-0222.

Any Quebecer Dataloungers know him or have theories?

He's gorgeous! I would love to find him.

What’s the Plateau district like? Where does that bridge go? Why would anyone walk in sub-zero temp?

Could he have been despondent, and jumped?

What's a tuque?

tuque is a Canadian term for a hat seen below

This actually makes no sense. Was he last seen the night he disappeared, or was he last seen a day later?

by Anonymousreply 703/09/2019

R7 the reddit page makes it a little clearer. He left the party and didn’t go home that night, but some people think they saw him in another area the next day. No way to confirm if it was him though.

Because, unlike bears, we can't hibernate through the winter.

Most likely he was drunk when he left the party and fell off the bridge.

Possibly he was mugged on the bridge and fell (or was pushed) during the scuffle. But at 6'2" I doubt anyone tried to mess with him unless he was out numbered or they had a gun.

But Datalounge will insist it was a gay rape gone wrong, long after the simplest explanation is proven twice over.

Looks a bit like The Cockgobbler, no?

by Anonymousreply 1403/09/2019

If he crossed the Champlain Bridge into Ottawa then he's missing in Ontario, but missing from Quebec? Or that he's a Quebec gay man who went missing? Maybe he passed out and froze to death. I'm not kidding, Ottawa can be colder than Mars on some winter days.

by Anonymousreply 1503/09/2019

Champlain Bridge in the summer, links residential areas of Gatineau and Ottawa. The Plateau district in Gatineau is mostly recent-ish suburbia, while Hintonburg is a much older but gentrifying/hipster area of Ottawa.

Calling it now. He choked on smegma .

by Anonymousreply 1703/09/2019

Handsome. I'm sure the Canuck detectives are doing their best. If he went missing here in the U.S., they wouldn't give a flaming fuck unless he came from old Yankee blue-blood wealth. Just like they don't give a shite when a black or Mexican person disappears. God bless him.

by Anonymousreply 1803/09/2019

Good looking guy. I hope he turns up ok.

by Anonymousreply 1903/09/2019

Maybe he met a rich Prince Charming who flew (or carried?) him to Paris.

It could happen.

by Anonymousreply 2003/09/2019

I know that area! There is a gay cruising area called Bate Island directly under the bridge. Kinda cold for that though.

Quebec is notoriously homophobic.

R18, do Canadian cops care about the gays? For some reason, some serial killer of gays in Toronto comes to mind

Exactly, R26. It's too cold for it.

No one knew him personally? Maybe Francophones are discussing his case somewhere I can't access because I don't speak French.

Pity that breeders and their crimes have a million pages dedicated to them, but a gay man's fate is of no interest.

He's probably on a bender with our dear friend, Tina.

Champlain Bridge doesn’t look like a pedestrian bridge r16. It looks like autos only. But maybe he walked over a different part of the bridge.

Also, 9 pm is kind of early to leave a party. Did he leave ... alone ??

by Anonymousreply 3403/10/2019

R31 there have been at least 3 posts on Reddit, usually the same description/info followed by thoughts and prayers. The Facebook page has a bit more info (like his phone was apparently last “pinged” on the bridge). Hopefully the 3 police departments (Gatineau, Ottawa, and the RCMP since that bridge is federal/NCC property) involved manage to coordinate their efforts and tips/clues.

another picture

by Anonymousreply 3603/10/2019

R34 actualy there is a concrete sidewalk but on one side only, and cycling lanes in both directions. Pedestrian paths at either end are probably challenging in winter, as the bridge ends in a scenic parkway context.

This. The picture above with Canada written on it is something a recently landed immigrant would wear before they open their "AL'S 100% CANADIAN FAMILY FRIED CHICKEN AND KEBABERIE WITH PICTURE OF MAPLE LEAF" restaurant.

And most people spell it this way: "Toque".

Tuque would be the French spelling actually...

Yeah and most Canadians speak English. So most people spell it this way: "Toque".

It's a wool cap. Call it a wool cap.

Just explaining it’s not a random typo, based on where he lived.

by Anonymousreply 4603/10/2019

I like "tuque" more than "beanie," which is what people call that kind of hat in America. A beanie to me is a yarmulke with a brim, not a woolen pull-on.

by Anonymousreply 4703/10/2019

It's Toque.

by Anonymousreply 4803/10/2019

I just read a detective novel that took place in Montreal in January. The author must have used the word "tuque" hundreds of times.

I hate these stories about missing gay men were we have to find out they committed suicide or were offed by trade. The story about the CDC officer in Atlanta last year was so sad.

I thought “tuque” was a typo and the author meant to write “toque”. Well, ya learn something new every day.

by Anonymousreply 5603/15/2019

I've known him for years,although not terribly well. Senior government type, but personally kind of a mess. If he was seen in HIntonburg the next day, he might have spent the night at Ottawa's one remaining bathhouse. From there, I don't know.

Sad ending on this one.

[quote]According to Gatineau police, an area resident reported finding a body near a bike path in the Aylmer area around 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday. When police arrived, they found the body and erected a security perimeter in order to forensic specialists to begin an investigation.
