UPDATE: Human remains found by hunter near Swanson, Sask. identified as missing man

SASKATOON – Police are not ruling out foul play in the disappearance of a Saskatoon man. Barry Heimbecker, 32, has not been seen in over a week.

A second man, Neilson Kakum, who was reported missing at the same time, has been located. Police have not released any other details.

Police say both are associated with street gang activity.

Heimbecker was last seen with Kakum, 21, the morning of March 20 at a residence in the Fairhaven neighbourhood.

A girlfriend of one of the men told police when she last spoke to her boyfriend that same morning, they were walking in a field north towards Highway 7 near Vanscoy to try and get a ride.

Family and friends of Heimbecker are concerned as they say it is not normal for him not to have contact with them.

Police are asking landowners in the Swanson and Delilse areas to check their farmland and out buildings for signs of anything suspicious.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
