RCMP believe Menard may be in the Winnipeg area, driving a 2008 Nissan Maxima with the Manitoba specialty plate #HOTMAIL.

Menard, who is Indigenous, 6’ tall and roughly 190 lbs., is known for his clothing line "Got land? Thank an Indian." Sales of the shirts and sweatshirts skyrocketed in 2014 after a student in Saskatchewan was told not wear the shirt because it was offensive.

Police are concerned for Menard’s welfare.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Dauphin RCMP detachment at 204-622-5020 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
