'I dream of him coming home': Family searches for Colten Pratt, 2 years after disappearance
Police renew calls for tips in man's disappearance, 2 years ago Sunday
Lydia Daniels often dreams about her son, Colten Pratt, walking through the door.
Daniels, from Long Plain First Nation, faced that reality again on Sunday, handing out posters in Winnipeg, looking for tips on the two year anniversary of her son's disappearance.
Pratt, 27, was last seen on Nov. 6, 2014 at the Marlborough Hotel in Winnipeg.

With 600 large posters and 800 smaller flyers in hand, Pratt's family and friends looked for answers on the city's streets.
"If there's anybody who has any information, call the Winnipeg police," Daniels said. "Give us some peace. Give us some peace of mind. I sure miss him. It's unbearable some days."
"I would have to say if there is one thing I miss the most about my son [it's] his sense of humour, and I miss that so much," Daniels said. "I miss everything about my son. I miss his presence. I miss everything."
For the past two years, a life without answers has led to an emotional rollercoaster for the family and their community, Daniels said.
Watching the news, Daniels looks into the people passing in the background hoping to catch a glimpse of her son. Every time a body is found, she said she fears the worst.
"As a mother you fear the worst for your child. Was my son murdered? Did he suffer? You just have to push those out with those positive thoughts, 'No there is hope there,'" she said.
"I think if we just keep him in the public eye as much as we can, that's the key," Pratt's aunt, Jacqueline Daniels, said.
"It might spark someone's memory. We are going to continue doing this until we find something out or get Colten home."
Pratt is described as five-foot-ten-inches tall and about 160 pounds. He has short brown hair and brown eyes.
He was last seen wearing a brown plaid jacket and blue jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the missing persons unit at 204-986-6250.
