Perry Sebastian, Jr., also known as P.J., of Hagwilget, has been missing for more than six months.

He was reportedly last seen during the early morning hours of Dec. 26, 2011, near Southbank.

According to St. Sgt. Grant MacDonald from the Burns Lake RCMP detachment, a follow up search for Sebastian was conducted on the Southside by members of Burns Lake Search and Rescue, Houston Search and Rescue and Burns Lake RCMP members on June 9, 2012.

The search was organized by the RCMP and according to St. Sgt. MacDonald about 10 people were involved, including the lead investigator for the file from the Burns Lake RCMP detachment.

“This was a follow up search to an earlier search that was conducted in January 2012,” St. Sgt. MacDonald said.

“We wanted to conduct a further ground search on the Southside of Francois Lake where Sebastian was last seen,” he said, adding that the search failed to provide any insight into the disappearance or any clues as to Sebastian’s whereabouts.

He said any further searches would be initiated by any new tips or evidence but that there is currently no other searches planned.

A $7000 dollar reward is being offered by the Hagwilget Village Council for information leading to the location of Sebastian.
