Whitehorse RCMP and Yukon Search and Rescue are looking for a missing person who was last seen in the Yukon River in the early hours of Oct. 10.

Whitehorse RCMP and Yukon Search and Rescue are looking for a missing person who was last seen in the Yukon River in the early hours of Oct. 10.

A witness saw Whitehorse resident Jeremy Scurvey, 25, in the water at the end of Lambert Street and Front Street and called the RCMP.

Scurvey is a First Nation man last seen wearing a dark blue hoodie and jeans. He is 5’6” and has black hair and brown eyes.

Whitehorse RCMP have enlisted Yukon Search and Rescue to help search the Yukon River and shorelines. The police are also using a helicopter to search from the air.

Though the search is focused on the Yukon River, the RCMP say it’s possible Scurvey could have left the river, and he may be elsewhere.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Whitehorse RCMP at 867-667-5555.
