WINNIPEG — A 33-year-old Winnipeg man who went missing in October 2015 has been found dead, according to police. Foul play is not suspected in his death.

Reid Bricker was last seen alive on October 24, 2015 after he was released from the Health Sciences Centre.

Bricker’s family had said he suffered from severe depression, borderline-personality disorder and social anxiety. He had also attempted to take his own life on more than one occasion. Bricker’s mother, Bonnie, said her son had attempted to take his life three times in ten days.

Bricker’s disappearance prompted his mother to push for the province to review the Personal Health Information Act after his family wasn’t notified when he was released from hospital.

She also pushed for the spotlight to be turned to mental health during the 2016 Manitoba election.
