The vehicle police believe Robert Schellenberg was driving has been found but there’s still no sign of the missing Whitehorse man.

The 1995, blue GMC pickup truck was discovered in a gravel pit about 20 km northwest of Whitehorse on the Alaska Highway this past Sunday.

Schellenberg, 47, was reported missing by his roommate on Dec. 10.

He was last seen on the morning of Dec. 7.

After the truck was found, “an extensive ground search was conducted in the surrounding area as well as a two-hour aerial search,” the RCMP said in a statement.

“The search consisted of 20 search-and-rescue volunteers, ‘M’ division’s police dog service, and Whitehorse detachment members.”

Police say the vehicle provided them with no clues as to where Schellenberg has gone.

Schellenberg is described as a Caucasian male, 5’10” and 150 lbs with brown hair and hazel eyes.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, boots, and a grey coat. He may be wearing a toque.

Police are still asking the public to call Whitehorse RCMP detachment at 667-5551 if they have any information.
