UPDATE: Frank Young located deceased – READ MORE
It’s been eight days since a little boy wearing Paw Patrol rubber boots and blue and green dinosaur pajamas went missing on the Red Earth Cree Nation.
Since then, overnight temperatures have dipped down to -7 C. More than 92 square kilometres of wooded areas, muskeg and bodies of water, houses and crawl spaces have been searched by land and air, but there is no evidence of Frank Young.
Still, those involved in the search efforts are holding out hope that the five-year old boy will be found safe.
“I don’t know if Frank Young is alive. We haven’t given up hope. History and previous searches have shown that humans can be resilient and that is why our efforts continue. We are doing everything we possibly can to find him alive,” said Sgt. Richard Tonge of the Carrot River RCMP.
