A man whose family hadn’t heard from him for five months has called home after his sister launched a campaign to find him.

In a message on Facebook, Noella Cockney wrote that Bobby Cockney has emailed their sister Bonnie, in Hay River, N.W.T.

“Thank you to everyone who helped out and got the word out to find him,” she wrote.
