A Brandon man, Jeff Freiheit, originally from Dauphin, has gone missing while hiking in Germany.

His wife, Selena Freiheit, last spoke with Jeffrey on Aug. 1, when he was in Bad Tolz, Germany.

The stop was part of his treck on Der Traumpfad, a famous hike that goes between Munich and Venice.

He posted a video and an image of himself on Instagram the next day near the end of that day's hike.

Since then he hasn't checked in with family or arrived at any of the pre-booked overnight stops he had arranged ahead of time.

She says it's out of character for him to have broken with his plan.

Freiheit was supposed to come back to Manitoba at the end of August.
