Whitehorse RCMP have been displaying posters around the city in hopes of finding a man who has not been seen since last October.

James David Kunuk, 34, was reported missing in December by his landlord.

He was last seen in the Whitehorse area in early October 2016.

Kunuk is originally from Inuvik, Northwest Territories.

He is described as being five feet, 10 inches tall (178 cm) and weighing between 180 and 210 lbs. (82 to 95 kg).

He has black hair and brown eyes. Tattoos of “THUG” and “LIFE” are on his left and right forearms. He is sometimes known as James or Jay Springgay.

“The family of James Kunuk continues to be concerned for his well-being,” Whitehorse RCMP Const. Kelly Manweiller said in a statement.

“He did not call home around his birthday in mid-December or over the holidays, which is very unusual for him.

“If anyone has information that could help us find James or has had any contact with him since early October, please let us know. ”

Kunuk’s mother has also spoken out about her missing son, saying:

“Please Jay, come home. If anyone has any information on Jay’s whereabouts, please contact the RCMP.

“We have no idea where he is. Any information you might have could help us find him.”

Though Kunuk has previous ties to both Vancouver and the N.W.T., he has not surfaced in either location.

Anyone with information about Kunuk is asked to contact Whitehorse RCMP at 667-5555.

If they wish to remain anonymous, they can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or through its website at http://www.crimestoppersyukon.ca
