Police Renew Call For Information About Man Who Disappeared In Winnipeg

Colten Pratt

Colten Pratt

Winnipeg, Manitoba — On November 6, 2014, Colten Pratt was seen leaving the Marlborough Hotel to go home. It's believed he was spotted in a bus shelter the following day, but has been missing since.

Eight years after Colten Pratt was last seen, police are renewing their call for anyone with information about the Pratt's disappearance to come forward.

Investigators previously said Pratt was last spotted in downtown Winnipeg on November 6, 2014.

Originally from Long Plain First Nation, the 26-year-old was living in the St. Vital area and volunteered with several groups.

"I dream of him coming home and I'm so happy in those dreams that he's there, and then when I wake up it's my nightmare, and it's real," his mother, Lydia Daniels, told CBC News in 2016. "It's real."

Police said they've since gotten video footage of someone believed to be Pratt near a North End bus shelter in the early hours of November 7, 2014.

That video was taken between 12:20 a.m. and 1:45 a.m. near a bus shelter on the corner of Main Street and Redwood Avenue, the Winnipeg Police Service said in an update.

Police said they believe Pratt had an encounter with at least two people while at the bus stop.

Investigators are asking for anyone who remembers seeing anything or has more information about what happened to Pratt to contact them.

Pratt, who was 26 when he disappeared, is described as five feet, 10 inches and about 160 pounds with a thin build, police said.

He had short brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a brown plaid jacket and blue jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Winnipeg Police Service at 204-986-6222. They can also contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

People see some homeless people in Downtown Vancouver and think it's this super dangerous place, but then forget that the other 99.9% of the people are law abiding citizens. On a per capita basis many smaller places are much more dangerous.
