The Ground Search and Rescue team is currently deploying around Kinkora searching for a man that apparently walked away from a motor vehicle accident.

Justin Brad Hunter of Kinkora, age 32, is the man currently being sought by the RCMP.

"He was dropped off at this house about 1 a.m. (Wednesday) morning by some friends," said Sgt. Andrew Blackadar of the RCMP.

"(Wednesday) afternoon a trucker was driving on Route 225 just west of Kinkora and saw an overturned vehicle on its roof, over a guardrail," said Blackadar. "The vehicle was down an embankment.

"RCMP went to the scene and found some tracks around the car and tracks walking away from the car but have not been able to find (Hunter)," said Blackadar. "The footprints have since blown over and filled with snow making it hard to determine direction of travel of the individual who left the vehicle.

"They made all kinds of inquiries with the family, the hospitals, friends and stuff and nobody seems to know where this guy is."

The missing man is five foot, eight inches tall, 190 pounds, short brown hair, blue eyes and glasses," said Blackadar. "He was driving a grey 2007 Mazda 6.

"If anybody knows where he is, like, he could be at somebody's house asleep right now, we are asking that they either contact the family or police to let us know where he is."

There are plans to ask for help from the RCMP helicopter if it is available Thursday.

"The RCMP is concerned for Hunter's well-being, given the high winds and low temperatures over the past 24 hours," said Blackadar.

Anybody who may have seen Hunter since 1 a.m., Jan. 2, or if anybody knows where he currently is, is asked to call the RCMP at (902) 566-7112 or contact local police immediately .
