Police have not ruled out foul play in the disappearance of two men in Saskatoon.

Neilson Kakum, 21, and Barry Heimbecker, 32, were last seen together at around 7 a.m. CST on March 20. The men were seen at a residence in the Fairhaven neighbourhood.

Police said the men were believed to be in a silver, late-model Chrysler 300 four-door car when they disappeared. The car was later found about 18 kilometres south of Delisle, just off of Highway 45 near Swanson, Sask.

Police said one of the men's girlfriends spoke to the man on a cell phone at around 9:30 a.m. on the day they were last seen. At the time, the men were walking in a field, heading north towards Highway 7 near Vanscoy, Sask., where they planned to get a ride.

Friends and family are concerned for the men's safety and told police it's not normal for them to go without contact.

Both of the men are associated with street gang activity and police said they aren't ruling out foul play.

Police have asked that landowners in the Swanson and Delisle areas check their farmland and buildings for anything suspicious.

Anyone with information should call the Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
