The Regina Police Service has asked for the public's help in finding a 48-year-old man who has not been seen since early December 2010.

Orville Sydney Laplante is described as male, Aboriginal, about 5' 8" tall, weighing about 160 pounds, with short brown hair and brown eyes. Investigators have determined that Laplante was last seen on Dec. 6 in downtown Regina. Family members filed a report with police on Jan. 4

He does not maintain a residence in Regina, so police investigation to locate him has included checking hospitals, shelters and any agencies that might offer shelter or assistance to a person living a transient lifestyle.

Anyone who knows of Laplante's whereabouts is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). In rural Saskatchewan, callers may give information to their nearest RCMP detachment.
