The sister of missing Promise (Max) Chukwudum is alarmed that there is still no sign of the 19-year-old University of Regina rugby player.
“There’s nothing yet and it’s been almost two weeks. It’s really frustrating,” said Chinaza Chukwudum. “I just hope no harm has come to him. I just hope he’s somewhere safe.”
After talking to him on the phone the afternoon before he went missing, the last time Chukwudum had contact with her brother was through a Snapchat post on Nov. 16.
She said he was with two or three people in a car and they looked like they were having fun.
Chukwudum said she was told that her brother suddenly ran away after being involved in some sort of altercation later that night.
He was last seen in the early hours of Nov. 17 in the Marshall Crescent area.
Chukwudum described her brother as friendly and fun.
“He’s very passionate about sports and very passionate about animals,” she said. “He’s very carefree and someone that likes to see the good in people.”
A rally is planned at the University of Regina for 2 p.m. on Thursday to drum up supporters to help find Promise.
Chukwudum is also organizing searches of the Whitmore Park and Transcona neighbourhoods.
Promise (Max) Chukwudum is five feet 11 inches tall and weighs 240 pounds and plays rugby at the U of R and with the Highlanders Rugby Club.
