Police in Yellowknife say there’s still no sign of a 63-year-old man reported missing more than two months ago.

RCMP issued a public appeal on Oct. 11, followed by a second on Oct. 18, in the hopes of locating Glenn Harold Field.

Field is reported to spend most of his time on the land in “the area of Rolfe Lake, 150 kilometres northeast of Yellowknife and 72 kilometres east of Gordon Lake,” say police.

A missing person’s investigation was launched after Field failed to make contact with people and businesses in Yellowknife, something he usually does regularly, according to Yellowknife RCMP.

Glenn Harold Field, 63, remains the subject of an active missing person’s investigation, say RCMP. He was reported missing in mid-October.

The exact date of Field’s last contact with people in the capital is not known by police.

“The investigation into (Field’s) disappearance is active and ongoing,” RCMP spokesperson Julie Plourde told Yellowknifer Thursday.

“At the moment, the RCMP still haven’t received information to progress the investigation, to find out what happened to Mr. Field, or where he is located,” stated Plourde.

Ken Weaver of Weaver and Devore, a go-to outfitter for campers, hunters and Northerners living in remote areas, told Yellowknifer police visited the Old Town business shortly after Field was reported missing.

Weaver said he told police he doesn’t know or recognize Field.

In October, RCMP urged residents to come forward with “any kind of information,” about Field, even if it doesn’t seem relevant.

“It could be helpful to the RCMP and could assist with the investigation,” police stated at the time.

Mounties are again encouraging anyone with information about Field to come forward and contact their local RCMP detachment.

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.

According to RCMP, missing person files remain active until the individual is reported found, or the person reaches the age of 110, or, if the person’s age is unknown, 92 years from the date they were last seen.
