A renowned Ontario chef missing since New Year’s Eve has been located outside the province, police said Thursday.
Waterloo Regional police issued a brief statement indicating Jonathan Gushue had been found and that authorities “no longer have a concern for his wellbeing.”
No other details were provided.
Gushue, an award-winning chef based out of Cambridge, Ont., went missing after checking out of Toronto’s Park Hyatt Hotel on New Year’s Eve.
The 41-year-old’s cellphone was found at the hotel and his car also located at the time he went missing.
Gushue is known in the culinary world for his work at Cambridge’s Langdon Hall Country House Hotel and Spa; the restaurant was named one of the world's top 100 restaurants in 2010.
Gushue was born in St. John’s, N.L. but left there at age 19. His resume as a chef includes a long list of luxury hotel restaurants, including London’s Berkeley Hotel and Truffles Restaurant at the Four Seasons Toronto.
During the investigation, police said Gushue had disappeared for a day or two in the past.
Gushue is married and has three children.
