Glenn Harold Field, 63, has been missing since October 2019.

Described as an outdoorsman known to spend most of his time on the land around Rolfe Lake area – some 150 kilometres northeast of Yellowknife and 72 kilometres east of Gordon Lake – Field’s disappearance was first brought to the public’s attention on Oct. 11 of last year by RCMP.

Police said Field often had contact with people and businesses in Yellowknife, adding that his failure to touch base with locals triggered the initial search.

Following the initial report issued to media in the fall of 2019, RCMP sought the public’s help again a week later, on Oct. 18, 2019.

In the following months, NNSL Media canvased local outfitter businesses as the search for Field continued.

RCMP confirmed in December that the investigation was ongoing.

Now, in June 2020, police are releasing new information about Field as they renew their public plea for help.

“Field chartered a plane in the Fall of 2018 and was dropped off at Rolfe Lake with his three German Shepherds,” states a news release from NWT RCMP on Tuesday afternoon.

“He was last seen in the area, on the west side of Rolfe Lake, in the Spring of 2019. Rolfe Lake is about 150 kilometres northeast of Yellowknife and 72 kilometres due east of Gordon Lake.

The RCMP is asking people travelling in the area to pay close attention to any details that may be associated with Mr. Field, including any sighting of his gear.

Mr. Field was in possession of a grey coloured canoe, an axe, an Iridium satellite phone, a McPherson tent, a .308 rifle and some basic supplies,” states the release, offering information that was previously not presented to the public.

Field is described as having grey hair with grey/blue eyes. He’s 5 feet 8 inches tall (178 cm) and weighs 169 pounds (77 kg).

Anyone with information related to Field’s whereabouts is asked to call Yellowknife RCMP at 867-669-1111, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
