COLD LAKE – Joshua Lee Andrew has not been seen or heard from in nearly two months. Now, Cold Lake First Nation (CLFN) is putting out a reward for any information that leads to the missing 35-year-old's whereabouts.

Band members from CLFN organized a search party earlier in October in an attempt to locate Andrew or any of his belongings.
“We found a pair of shoes and maybe some articles of clothing. We're doing some follow-up and seeing if that'll lead to any type of tips,” said Janvier.
