RCMP say the vehicle was discovered last weekend in a gravel pit on the Alaska Highway about 20 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse.

They say an extensive ground and aerial search was done in the area and officers, search and rescue volunteers and the police dog unit took part.

The police say nothing in the pickup sheds any light on Schellenberg's whereabouts.

Anyone with information about Schellenberg is asked to contact the Whitehorse RCMP Detachment at 867-667-5551.

Corrections

  • A previous version of this story incorrectly stated Robert Schellenberg's height as five foot four. The RCMP describes his height as five foot ten.
