RCMP investigators are again asking the public for help in locating a man from the Rural Municipality of Ste. Anne, who has been missing for more than a year.
Christopher Peter Hawkins, or Peter, as he is called, took a taxi from the RM of Ste. Anne to Betula Lake on May 29, 2020. The 48-year-old was last seen walking towards a path that leads to the provincial campground. At the time, Peter was wearing a red t-shirt and grey pants.
At the time of Peter's disappearance, RCMP searched the area, but he has not been seen or heard from in over a year.
"We miss him, his humour, honesty, and caring; his love of music and sharing his detailed knowledge of NHL hockey," says his mother Julie Hawkins.
"His cat Wendy still sleeps on his bed, missing him and hoping he'll come home. We are all praying for his safety and while we keep searching, we need the help of people who may know something to come forward to police."
Peter is described as approximately 5' 11", weighing 180 pounds, with dark brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Steinbach RCMP, La Du Bonnet RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
