Police are asking for public help to find the missing man, who was last seen in June.
Officers are asking hunters and tourists near Arborg, Manitoba to watch for signs of Eduardo Balaquit. Balaquit, 59, hasn’t been seen since he left his home in the Amber Trails area the night of June 4. Police later said they believed he was the victim of a crime. Balaquit is believed to have been working at 380 Keewatin St. between the hours of 6 and 9 p.m. on June 4.
It is been almost five months since Eduardo is missing, but officers still believe more details and evidence can be found and hopefully will help find him still alive and well.
The day he was gone, his van was found behind a building on Keewatin Street but Balaquit’s son, Edward, said the vehicle was not parked in its usual spot and its window was smashed. Police, family, and friends started searching streets around the area but about 10 days later, the search expanded to Arborg, Manitoba.
At the end of June, police released photos of two men who police believed “have information that can help with the investigation.” “Homicide investigators have been working relentlessly on this file since they took it, and now they have two images of individuals they want to release to the public in an attempt to identify them,” Const. Jay Murray said June 27.
With time more and more police officers were involved in the investigation and search for a missing man, but unfortunately, months later still there is no information about his whereabouts and his condition.
“That’s a critical part of the investigation that we wouldn’t be getting into,” Carver said, adding police suspect Balaquit was the victim of a homicide. “Investigators feel that the case is moving forward.” At the same time, some of the investigating officers still believe they are able to find the missing man safe and sound.
His family is still hoping to find alive and well, they are still searching for him every day, family members can’t sleep and have no rest, trying to find Balaquit and bring him back home to his loved ones.
