It’s been one year since 60-year-old Eduardo Balaquit‘s disappearance.
The Winnipeg Police Service has released stock images of a 2010 – 2015 blue Ford Escape SE. It should be noted these stock images are only for descriptive purposes.
The vehicle matching this description was around the Keewatin area when Balaquit arrived for work and likely in the Arborg, Manitoba area on June 4, 2018.

Balaquit is 5’4″ and 155 lbs with a medium build, and he has black hair and brown eyes. He’s Asian in appearance. When Balaquit was last seen he was wearing a black zip-up sweater, black pants, and black shoes.
