The RCMP says the search for Jamie Sark is still on, even if the ground search for the missing 28-year-old has concluded in Lennox Island.

Sgt. Neil Logan of Prince District RCMP says they're currently following up on leads as to Sark's whereabouts. He was last seen Aug. 21 near the island's Mosquito Path.

"A lot of people think that when Ground Search and Rescue leaves that the search is over," Logan said. "But the search will continue."
