There’s been a development in the case of a missing Winnipeg man.

The movements of Colten Pratt have been expanded thanks to new video announced Monday by the Winnipeg Police Service.

The 26-year-old disappeared three years ago from the city’s downtown core.

“It’s torture of the mind because you don’t know where your child is. Your heart breaks every day,” said his mother, Lydia Daniels.

The new footage shows Pratt at a bus stop in the North End. That extends the time period by about three hours, said police, who did not release the video.

“During this time period it is believed he had an encounter with at least two other individuals,” said Const. Tammy Skrabek.

Police are now looking for anyone who may have witnessed that encounter.

Daniels says having a missing son has affected every part of her life.

“It doesn’t get easier. It gets harder and harder,” she said. “It has affected my physical (and) emotional well-being.”

But that hasn’t stopped the family from finding new ways to search for Pratt, who they say was an aspiring film-maker. They’ve teamed up with a local film crew to make a documentary about his life.

Members of the crew were on hand Monday at a feast they family held to mark his three-year disappearance.

Daniels says it’s another way to keep her son’s name in the public eye.

“I feel good knowing that people are whispering Colten’s name and that they are talking about him.”
