RCMP are asking for help from the public finding a man reported missing over the weekend from a remote northern Manitoba community.

Abraham Beardy, 43, was last seen Friday night while canoeing with a woman on the Gods River, which runs through Shamattawa First Nation, about 350 kilometres south of Churchill.

The canoe Beardy and the woman were in tipped, RCMP said in a Tuesday news release. The woman made it ashore, but it’s not known what happened to Beardy.
