Gjoa Haven, pop. 1288, is located in Nunavut's Kitikmeot region.

RCMP say search and rescue officials in Gjoa Haven are looking for a missing person who got lost while out searching for another individual.

A police spokesperson says a man went missing over the weekend when his vehicle broke down an hour out of town.

He was found safely within a day.  

Then, yesterday afternoon RCMP were told about a new search.

It seems one of the members of the local team wasn't fully prepared while helping with the initial search and became lost.

Now search and rescue officials are looking for him.  

Volunteers from Taloyoak have joined the search.

Canadian Rangers from Gjoa Haven are also looking for the missing man.
