The incidents occurred in the community of Norman Wells, where the man, from Newfoundland, was employed in the community. The man had left the community to return to Newfoundland when the incidents were reported. During the course of the investigation, two more victims were identified.

The alleged offences are believed to have occurred in Norman Wells between January 1, 2019 and June 24. 2021. Mr. Carey may have had contact with other youth in the community. If anyone has information related to potential criminal offences involving Mr. Carey, they are asked to contact the Norman Wells RCMP at 580-1111, or your local detachment.
