A search for a man who went missing in Saskatoon will go ahead this weekend.

Last week, 22-year-old Justin Kishayinew’s father said they had to cancel a search due to lack of funding.

Since then, a woman whose nephew went missing years ago, along with several others, have taken up the cause.

Myrna LaPlante will be joined by Kishayinew’s family in search efforts on Saturday and Sunday. They will focus on the South Saskatchewan River and Meewasin Trail, searching by ground and – if possible – boat.

LaPlante organizes a bi-annual search for her nephew Cody Ridge Wolfe and has been a part of searching for Emily Osmond. She said she offered up her experience in February, and this weekend marks the second official search for Kishayinew.

Kishayinew left his home on the 100 block of Avenue L South on February 10 and has not been seen since. His last known public communication was a Facebook profile picture update at 7:30 am.

For those with time or donations to offer, they can contact Myrna Laplante on Facebook or by cell at 306-221-7475.

Search orientation will start at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 21 at the Saskatoon Indian and Metis Friendship Centre and will continue on Sunday, starting at Third Avenue United Church, 304-3rd Avenue North at 12:30 p.m.
