Police say John Batchelor's boat was found ransacked and abandoned off the island of Grand Bahama. (Police handout)Police in the Bahamas are looking for a 72-year-old Canadian whose sailboat was found ransacked and abandoned off the island of Grand Bahama.

The Royal Bahamas Police Force is distributing flyers of the missing John Batchelor of Ontario. His hometown in the province is not known.

Spokeswoman Loretta Mackey said today that police are still treating the disappearance as a missing persons case.

Police boarded Batchelor's nine-metre sailboat last week after it had been sitting for several days with no sign of the owner.

The boat appeared to have been ransacked but there was no one on board. Police did find a malnourished dog on the boat.

A dinghy was attached to the boat and a swim ladder was down.
