Arthur Lawrence Ducharme went missing in July.
The trauma this can cause to loved ones runs deep. Support for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women has grown over the years, but there is still a lack of support for missing men.
Arthur's Mother, Tara Ducharme, says she last spoke with him on June 28th.
"When he didn't arrive home and he didn't call and not message not anything. I became concerned. I went to file a missing person report with the police. My family has been desperately trying to pull resources together to have search parties to travel to Swan River area to search for Arthur.
One of the many reasons I'm reaching out to you is to shed light on the lack of support indigenous men receive when they go missing. It is disheartening to see how little attention and resources are dedicated to finding them."
Arthur’s mother went on to say that very little information has been released from the RCMP because it relates to an ongoing investigation.
The search for Arthur will happen this Saturday and the family is looking for volunteers and those who have quads, drones, and boats and can assist with ground searches.
The search will start with a gathering at the GLCM to plan and map areas that have already been searched.
