The Manitoba Métis Federation and family of a boy who went missing more than 23 years ago have unveiled a sign offering a reward for the discovery of his body.
Marcus McKay, eight-years-old at the time, went missing while his family were hunting near the Town of Mallard on July 15, 2000.
A family member had just shot a deer in the area, which is near the southern tip of Waterhen Lake in the province’s northwest, and the boy was waiting by the carcass while his family went to get the rest of the hunting party. He hasn’t been seen since, despite an intensive search at the time.
On Friday, MMF officials announced the Métis government would offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to the discovery of McKay.
The MMF directed anyone with information to call RCMP or their local police, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
