A man from Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, who was missing on the land for several days has been found safe.
Kashtin Simik left Chesterfield Inlet on Friday and did not return home.
Search teams in Chesterfield Inlet and Rankin Inlet were searching for him all weekend and into Monday.
According to Rankin Inlet Search and Rescue, searchers found Simik walking on foot Monday night. His snowmobile had run out of gas.
Wesley Innukshuk was part of the search team. He says it was a relief when they found Simik.
"It's always a worrying time when you go out on a search [and] are scouring the region by helicopter," he said in Inuktitut.
