The Yukon RCMP’s Historical Case Unit is in charge of looking for proof that may answer the disappearance of James Kunuk.
Kunuk was just 34 years old when he was last found. According to a police description, he is 5’10” tall and weighs over 180 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
Cst. Michael Simpson, one of the investigators, said many sides were investigated after Kunuk’s disappearance. A break in the case will only depend on someone coming ahead with new data. As over five years have passed since Kunuk was last seen, he said tips from the public are essential in finding out what happened to the missing man.
Simpson said September. 21, 2016, was the last time he saw Kunuk. His landlord reported him missing in December of the same year. There were some possible visions of Kunuk after September. 21, but none were confirmed.
When Kunuk left the residence, which he recently moved into, Simpson noted that he left his wallet.
Kunuk has family and relatives in the Inuvik area and lives in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia. Simpson said Kunuk had resided in Whitehorse on and off before the short stint in the Yukon capital, which led to his disappearance.
Simpson described Kunuk’s family as integrated and in support of the investigation that might provide answers.
Historical Case Unit Investigators ask anyone regarding Mr. Kunuk’s disappearance to contact them via telephone (867-667-5500) or email.
