Police in Yellowknife have ended their month-long search for a 45-year-old man, saying he is no longer considered missing.

Colin Ford was reported missing in a statement on December 10, in which RCMP said the Yellowknife resident had not been seen since the evening of Monday, December 3.

On Wednesday last week, police told Cabin Radio their investigation remained active – though posts on social media appeared to suggest some people were aware of his whereabouts.
