In a statement, police said they were looking for footage of the park area between 6:30 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. Saturday.

Earlier this week, police said they found Walker’s red Ford F-150 and some of his belongings at the park, located south of Saskatoon near the South Saskatchewan River.

RCMP, which are involved in the investigation, say there are no indications of criminal activity so far.

« Right now we are focused on locating them in this area, » the RCMP sergeant said. Greg Abbott said on Tuesday.

« There is no new evidence. The objects were found near the river and that is why we are focusing on the special units (drones, underwater and surface search teams) that we have right now.

He said there were no other clues to indicate what happened to Walker and his son.
