PENTICTON - The search for the body of a man believed drowned after falling into Trout Creek last month is over.

Peachland resident David Shackleton’s body was found Sunday, May 15, Penticton RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says.

The victim’s family continued searching the river after official attempts were called off due to high water levels. On Sunday, the victim’s father located the body in a part of the river difficult to access.

Search and rescue members and police were called to recover the body, which was located close to the 15-kilometre marker of the Princeton-Summerland Road.

The search for Shackleton began Saturday evening, April 16, after a quad flipped over while crossing Trout Creek not far from where the body was eventually recovered. High water levels impeded search progress and the official search was suspended until water levels receded, though family continued to search on their own.
