A missing Winnipeg man who survived for three weeks in the woods says he’s grateful to be home.

Brad Lambert, 46, was reported missing on Nov. 15 after he was last seen in Marchand, southeast of Steinbach, before he departed on a hunting trip. Police and relatives launched an air and ground search for Lambert in the hopes of finding him, before he walked into a store in Marchand on Saturday morning, hungry and tired.

Lambert said he can't disclose many details of the ordeal until he gives police a full statement. He said he had no food in his truck, but drank melted snow from the surrounding terrain to stay hydrated.

"I hung in there and hoped and waited and thought of my family and friends and loved ones. That kept me going," said Lambert, who was released from hospital Saturday night.

With no leads in the missing-persons case, police issued a news release on Friday asking people in Manitoba and Ontario to check their property for the six-foot Lambert. He had last been seen in the Marchand area wearing camouflage clothing and driving his Ford F-150 truck, police said.

On Saturday, Lambert showed up in a store in Marchand.
