A Canadian man who hasn't been seen since he was at a Yellowstone County residence Thursday remained missing after a Friday search of Pryor Creek.

Yellowstone County Sheriff Mike Linder provided the update on the search for 37-year-old Cameron Collin in an email sent late Friday afternoon to local media and law enforcement. 

"Searchers concentrated efforts on Pryor Creek, probing and raking the bottom of the creek from an inflatable raft. No signs of Mr. Collin were discovered. The search and investigation are continuing," Linder wrote.

A press release issued by the sheriff's office Tuesday stated that Collin hadn't been seen since 10:45 p.m. on the previous Thursday when he was at a residence on the 5100 block of Pryor Road. Police believed at the time that Collin might have walked away from the residence headed for Billings and no foul play was suspected. 

Collin stands 6 feet 5 inches tall, weights about 200 pounds and has a noticeable gap between his front teeth, according to that release. Collin was further described as having a skinny build. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, cowboy boots and a black long-sleeve T-shirt with "Affliction" written across the front.

Friends and neighbors searched the Pryor Road property and the sheriff's office also searched for Collin by air and with K-9 units. 

Anyone who spotted a man matching Collin's description walking last Thursday night or Friday morning on Highway 87 East, Pryor Road or Blue Creek road was asked to call the sheriff's office, according to the earlier press release.

Friday's search update requested that anyone with information about Collin contact the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office at 406-256-2929.
