RCMP search for teen missing in woods at Manitoba park

WINNIPEG – Police are searching the woods of Pembina Valley Provincial Park for Travis Sakkau, 19, who failed to return home Thursday.

The Winkler man told his family he would be visiting the park but didn’t indicate when he would return, RCMP Const. David Portelance said. When he didn’t come back that evening, they called police.

“His family was concerned,” Portelance said. “Everybody’s working hard to try and locate him.”

Police found Sakkau’s car in a wooded area of the park and the Winkler Police Department, Manitou RCMP, the RCMP search and rescue team, Office of the Fire Commissioner staff and Department of Natural Resources personnel are searching the area. The STARS air ambulance was also dispatched to search the area.
