News release

Yukon RCMP Major Crimes Unit (MCU), with the assistance of Yukon Search and Rescue (YSAR), conducted two days of ground and air searches over the weekend in the area of McIntyre Creek and Fish Lake Road in Whitehorse. The search was as a result of information RCMP received during the course of the investigation.

Chad McGill was last seen in his vehicle, a 2019 red Kia Stinger, British Columbia licence plate, in the Whitehorse area on August 24, 2022. The vehicle was found abandoned on August 26, 2022, parked facing east on the Alaska Highway. The vehicle was recovered by police between kilometers 1474 and 1476, just east of the Kluane Wagon Road.

Police believe Mr. McGill's disappearance is associated to the homicide of James Richard Aikens, who was found deceased on August 27, 2022, on a rural property north of Whitehorse. Mr. Aikens' homicide is still under investigation by the Yukon RCMP Major Crime Unit.

Information about Mr. McGill's disappearance was previously shared in August and September 2022 by the Yukon RCMP.

Yukon RCMP wish to thank those who have already come forward with information and want to speak to anyone with information on Mr. McGill's whereabouts, or anyone who saw him or his vehicle in the Whitehorse area between August 24 and 26, 2022. Investigators also want to follow up with anyone who may have interacted with Mr. McGill throughout the summer months before his disappearance on August 24, 2022.

Mr. McGill's family Yukon RCMP are concerned for his well-being. Members of his family say that it is out of character for him not be in communication with them for this long.
