The search for a man missing west of Timmins has ended.

Police have been searching for the 57-year-old since Friday, Sept. 1, which is when he was last been seen at the Old Mill Campground on Highway 101 about 50 kilometres west of the city.

Over the weekend, volunteers also helped out with the search, which included the OPP's emergency response team (ERT), canine unit, and aviation services.
