Police in Yellowknife launched a public appeal late on Monday for help finding a missing 45-year-old man.

Colin Ford is described by police as white, 5 ft 8 in tall, and of heavy build, with short grey-and-white hair, green eyes, and a goatee.

He was last seen a week ago, on the evening of Monday, December 3, near Kam Lake Road and Deh Cho Boulevard.
