The RCMP is asking for the public’s help to find a man who has not been seen by his family for nearly five years.
Gregory Hrenyk was last seen in Watson Lake in approximately October 2009, hitchhiking south on the Alaska Highway.
Watson Lake detachment commander Sgt. Cam Lockwood says the 43-year-old Liard First Nation man said he was leaving town to visit friends. His family hasn’t seen or heard from him since.
Lockwood said the family first approached the RCMP in 2010 to see if they could track Hrenyk down. Officers did not find him. Lockwood said the man has a history of disappearing for years and not contacting family.
Now the police have gone public, asking people come forward if they know anything.
If you have any information or have had any interaction with Hrenyk since 2009, contact the Watson Lake RCMP detachment at (867) 536-2677 or (867) 536-5555.
He is described as approximately 5-foot-3, 119 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He may also go by the names: Gregg Hrenyk, Gregg Caesar, and Gregory Caesar.
Hrenyk is believed to have spent time in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia in the past, specifically in the downtown east side of Vancouver.
