Winnipeg police have released the sketch of a suspect wanted for questioning in a missing person case.

The man is believed to have been with Robert (Bobby) Thomson on the evening of July 21, 2012.

Thomson was last seen that day at the Osborne Village liquor mart. 

Police are still seeking further information about a female who may also have been in the company of the suspect.

The man is described as between 5-foot-10 and six feet with dark-coloured eyes, a muscular build, and dark hair that is possibly spiked on top.

Police first went to the public in late November for help in finding Thomson.

His father, Robert Sr., issued an emotional, teary plea at a police press conference, urging anyone who knows where his son is to come forward.

He said his son would never go this long without contacting his friends or family.

Bobby is about five-foot-seven and 140 pounds with a slim build, brown hair and blue eyes.

Before his disappearance he worked as a landscaper.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the missing persons unit at 204-986-6250 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
