SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. — Clarke Road Transport is asking members of the trucking industry to help it find one of its drivers, who went missing near here last week.

Thirty-three-year-old Michael Doucette was reported missing on Mar. 6, just one day after his birthday. His truck and trailer has been found at the Husky Truck Stop in Sault Ste. Marie, but there’s still no sign of Doucette.

His family is extremely worried, as it’s the first time Doucette has ever disappeared. He usually calls his parents every second day. Doucette was hauling a load of polished granite at the time of his disappearance.

Clarke Road Transport has been able to determine the last time he purchased fuel was Feb. 27 and the last time he used his personal credit card was for a meal in Sault Ste. Marie shortly before his disappearance. There is no indication he crossed the border into the U.S.

Doucette is described as having a medium to heavy build with a bald forehead. He was driving a 2000 gray International with a 48-foot flatbed trailer. The load he was carrying was destined for St. Cloud, MN. Just days before his disappearance, Doucette called the receiver to notify them he would be there the following day.

If anyone has any information about Doucette, please call investigating officer Cst. Laurin at 905-453-3311 ext 2200. If he’s not available, information should be passed on to any other officer at that number.
