Searchers have found a young Baker Lake man who has been missing since Nov. 18, Nunavut RCMP said Nov. 23.

They found Marcus Duval, 20, about 10 kilometres outside of Baker Lake at about 2:20 p.m. Nov. 23.

Police said they took him to the Baker Lake health centre to be treated for what they describe as non-life-threatening injuries.

Marcus Duval, 20, was last seen leaving his parents’ home and hadn’t been seen since.

“We would like to thank all the community volunteers and military along with the Baker Lake search and rescue team for their tireless efforts in the search for Marcus Duval,” police said.

Family, friends, RCMP members and local search and rescue teams spent last weekend looking for the young man without success.

“His parents are worried about him,” wrote a family friend on Facebook Nov. 20. “It’s unusual… for him to be out this long, it’s been three days and he hasn’t gone home.”
