Christopher Peter Hawkins (who goes by Peter), 48, took a taxi from the RM of Ste Anne to Betula Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park on May 29, 2020. He was last seen walking towards a path that leads to the provincial campground. He was wearing a red t-shirt and grey pants.

At the time Peter went missing, RCMP searched the area, but he has not been seen or heard from in over a year.

"We miss him – his humour, honesty, and caring; his love of music and sharing his detailed knowledge of NHL hockey," said his mother Julie Hawkins. "His cat Wendy still sleeps on his bed, missing him and hoping he'll come home. We are all praying for his safety and while we keep searching, we need the help of people who may know something to come forward to police."

Peter is described as approximately 5'11", 180 pounds, with dark brown hair and brown eyes.

The RCMP are asking anyone with information to call the Steinbach RCMP at 204-326-1234, Lac Du Bonnet RCMP at 204-345-8685, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or secure tip online at
