His body was discovered not far from the spot where his car was found on Saturday, in a farmer’s field northwest of Marquette in the RM of Woodlands.

The 24-year-old’s family and friends spent several days searching for him after he disappeared. They were joined by RCMP and Winnipeg police, using a helicopter, ATVs, drones and foot patrols. 

The family said they were told by Winnipeg police that Yasir likely died of hypothermia and foul play is not suspected.

Temperatures dipped to –3 C overnight on Thursday.

According to family, Rahama was a gentle and loving brother and son who will be greatly missed. They say they appreciate all friends who helped search for him.
