Quebec police looking for missing Lac-Bouchette man

Police are looking for a man they say has not returned to his home in Lac-Bouchette in the Lac-Saint-Jean region for several days.

A family member alerted authorities Saturday night after noticing the man, who is in his 60s, was not home.

Police said he may have left on a snowmobile.

Searches are underway in the region, particularly on snowmobile trails.
