A search is underway for a man missing from Behchoko.

Frank Alfred Black was last seen on Thursday when he left his cabin on Russell Lake.

When he didn't return, people in Behchoko started searching but found nothing. On Saturday the RCMP were contacted. Officers searched the ground and water.

On Monday, an aerial search located Black's boat but there was no sign of the missing 57 year-old. Footprints were found leading away from the boat into the bush.

His boat was towed back to Behchoko. His belongings were still in the boat, with the exception of his gun.

The search continues today. Police say Black is an experienced outdoorsman.
