“Today we received information that is leading us to believe he may no longer be in this community,” said Regina Police Chief Evan Bray in a video update posted to social media around 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday, the Saskatchewan RCMP said that Sanderson was not on James Smith Cree Nation. That came after a heavy police presence responded to reported sightings there of the man.
Police had charged Myles and his brother Damien Sanderson with first-degree murder. Damien's body was later found on James Smith Cree Nation.
