Nunavut man reported missing found dead in Winnipeg

A Nunavut man who was reported missing in Winnipeg last week has been found dead, police said.

No foul play is believed to have been committed after Johnny Arragutainaq, 24, was found dead, Winnipeg police said in an update Tuesday afternoon.

Police have not released how he died or where his body was found.

The police missing persons unit continues to investigate, the update said.

Police said Saturday that Arragutainaq was last seen in the Polo Park area of ​​the city on July 3 and had not been heard from since.

His mother, Alicie Arragutainaq, told CBC over the weekend that the family had been in Winnipeg since March from Sanikiluaq, Nunavut, due to the medical needs of a relative.

She said Johnny had been to Winnipeg several times, but had never gone missing.
