A large-scale search continues for 5-year-old Frank Young in and around Red Earth Cree Nation.

Young was last seen in Tuesday April 19.

He was wearing rubber boots, green pyjamas and a navy jacket.  

“It’s cold and snowy and this is a very young child, so we are very concerned. The Saskatchewan RCMP and partner agencies, together with the local community, continue to tirelessly search for Frank,” says Sgt. Richard Tonge of the Carrot River RCMP. “We are searching in the community, where Frank was last seen yesterday, including a large rural area outside of the community, which includes heavily treed areas as well as bodies of water. Efforts include using everything from all-terrain vehicles and boats to thermal imaging, on-foot grid searches and more.”

An RCMP plane with a thermal camera will perform an aerial search of the area later today.

Investigators continue to ask anyone who sees any sign of Frank to call 911 or call the Carrot River RCMP immediately at 306-768-1200.
