Family members told KIRO 7-TV that they traveled to Washington from Australia to retrace his steps and assist local authorities.
“We’ve been close to him all our lives. He’s single. He’s like another dad, we’re like his children,” said Nathan and Andrew Pickering, both nephews to Haviland. “At the moment, we’ve got no leads. Like we’re on zero, so we’re just reaching out to people to help and to come forward.”
Haviland is 5-feet-9 inches tall, approximately 190 pounds with grey/brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen walking south on Talbot Ave in Renton. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
