Police say they are confident that a missing Whitehorse man is safe and sound.
But officers will continue to investigate until they are able to speak to him themselves.
Murray Scheck was last seen in Whitehorse on Dec. 19.
In an interview this morning, Yukon RCMP Const. Dean Hoogland said that since issuing the public plea for help this week, the RCMP “received information from many individuals that Mr. Scheck is alive and well.”
Hoogland said the investigators want to speak to the 59-year-old carpenter themselves before officially wrapping up the case, but believe he is safe.
As for where Sheck is and what led him to disappear, Hoogland said officers need to speak to Scheck before releasing that information. (Ashley Joannou)
