Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a Whitehorse man. It’s the second recent investigation into a missing person.
Murray Scheck, 59, was first reported missing to the police on Jan. 3.
Police began investigating and conducting interviews. So far, it appears the last time Scheck was seen was in Whitehorse on Dec. 19, 2013, Yukon RCMP Const. Dean Hoogland said yesterday.
Scheck, who works as a carpenter, may be driving a gray 2010 Dodge Challenger with Yukon licence plate EJH98.
He is described as a Caucasian, 5’8”, weighing 167 pounds with grayish brown hair and brown eyes. Police say they don’t know what Scheck was wearing when he was last seen.
Meanwhile, police are still looking for a second missing man. Robert Schellenberg, 47, was reported missing by his roommate on Dec. 10.
He was last seen three days earlier.
On Dec. 15, the 1995, blue GMC pickup truck Schellenberg had been driving was found in a gravel pit about 20 km northwest of Whitehorse on the Alaska Highway.
Police conducted an extensive search of the surrounding area, including a two-hour search by air.
The ground search included 20 search and rescue volunteers, RCMP officers and help from the police dog service.
The truck provided no clues as to where Schellenberg has gone, police said at the time.
Schellenberg is described as a Caucasian, 5’10” and 150 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.
He was last seen wearing blue jeans, boots and a grey coat. He may be wearing a toque.
Hoogland said there are no updates on the Schellenberg case. Police are continuing to investigate and are appealing to the public for help.
Anyone with any information on either Scheck or Schellenberg is being asked to contact the Whitehorse RCMP detachment at 867-667-5551.
