Safe to say that he didn't harm himself?

Only his hand was visible to searchers.

Palliser says Amaamatuaq was not dressed in winter clothing.

An air and ground search is underway near the Nunavik community of Akulivik, in northern Quebec.

Teams are looking for Samwillie Amaamatuaq, 34, who has been missing for 11 days. Searchers say he walked out onto the land last week and never returned. He reportedly had no hunting gear with him.

The ground search started a day after his disappearance, but blizzards have hampered the search.

A pocket knife believed to belong to Amaamatuaq has been found out on the land.

Searchers from nearby community of Puvirnituq, Que., have joined the search, but strong winds and snow stalled efforts today.
