Jake Basto, 18, from Hopedale, was last seen around 2 a.m. Saturday in Makkovik.

The family he lived with in Makkovik said he couldn't sleep and decided to go for a walk.

Basto didn't show up to his job at the town's fish plant the next morning, and police were called Saturday afternoon.

The RCMP performed aerial searches of the surrounding area on Sunday.

Search and rescue efforts were ongoing as of Monday.

Family said Basto had recently graduated from high school, and was looking forward to attending the College of the North Atlantic in Happy Valley-Goose Bay in September for carpentry.
