Civillian search and rescue teams, along with the RCMP, local volunteers and family members are continuing their search in the Shellbrook area for missing 68-year-old James (Jim) Mumm.

Mumm went missing Tuesday afternoon. He was last seen walking on Second Street West in Shellbrook at about 10 a.m. Tuesday. He was reported missing at noon. There is concern for his well being, as he has serious health issues, limited mobility and may be confused or disoriented.

Shellbrook RCMP sent out this photo of James Mumm from video surveillance captured at the Shellbrook Co-op at 9:50 a.m. Tuesday.

Searchers are combing through the area on quads, on foot and on horseback. The Saskatoon Police Air Services is helping by searching from the air. There is no definite point of last contact to start the search from, so there is a vast area to explore.

A command post has been set up at the Shellbrook RCMP detachment. Anyone wishing to help can attend the detachment.

Searchers may be going door-to-door and searching alleys, fields, backyards and the rural area around Shelbrook. They are requesting that people check their backyards, sheds, garages or any type of outbuildings that could provide shelter. If anyone has seen or been in contact with Mumm in the last 24 hours, they should contact the Shellbrook RCMP at 306-747-2606
