WINNIPEG--Family and friends of Colten Pratt launched a search Saturday for the missing 26 year-old First Nations man.
Pratt was last seen at a downtown hotel on Nov. 6.
Pratt apparently used his cell phone to send a photo of himself to his mother on the night he disappeared. Family members say that phone was found downtown. Now the family is trying to identify the woman who also appears in that photo as she may have clues to Pratt’s whereabouts.
Angela Bercier is Pratt’s cousin. She says she posted the photo on Facebook and despite it being shared nearly 1,000 times, no one knows for sure who the woman is.
The family says Pratt was in a bar at the Marlborough Hotel in downtown Winnipeg on the night he disappeared and may have gone to another hotel with the woman in the photo.
Family and friends gathered at a downtown office Saturday to search the city and distribute flyers and photos of Pratt.
Pratt has been reported missing to Winnipeg Police, who issued a press release earlier in the week. They’re asking anyone with information to contact police.
