A group of residents from Split Lake gathered in Thompson July 21 to start a group search and rescue effort for Raymond Flett, a 58-year-old man from Split Lake. The RCMP in Thompson were contacted on July 17 about Flett going missing in Thompson, and have been actively looking for the man.
RCMP have been in contact with the homeless shelter, as well as relatives in the area, and have been on patrol daily looking for Flett.
Flett is an aboriginal male with grey hair, around 190 pounds, and six feet tall. He was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt, and navy pants with strings. Flett has an eagle tattoo on his left hand, and on his left arm there is a tattoo of the letter M.
RCMP say Flett has been known to visit Nelson House as well as Norway House, and they have not had any leads about him being in Thompson.
Family and friends of Flett gathered at the Keewatin Tribal Council offices in Thompson and are conducting group searches for the next few days in hopes of finding the missing man.
