Search underway for missing Qikiqtarjuaq man
A search was underway July 13 for a 28 year-old male who went missing from Qikiqtarjuaq.
Police and volunteers have been looking for the man by land, sea and air since July 4, when RCMP received a missing person report. But there’s been no sign of the man since.
In an news release, police said the man had little in the way of clothing, food or equipment when he set out on foot for Pangnirtung. Police have alerted Parks Canada staff at Auyuittuq National park, which lies between the two communities, to watch for the man.
Police said despite good weather, difficult terrain and the vast area have hampered search efforts.
