KAMLOOPS - The woman reported missing earlier this week in the Adams Lake area has been located.

The woman, who was camping with her boyfriend when she was reported missing on Wednesday was found last night, Sept. 18, according to Kamloops Search and Rescue.

Alan Hobler with the volunteer service said yesterday that Barriere and Shuswap search members, along with a Provincial Emergency Program Air team, were helping to search around a campground in Bush Creek, near Adams Lake. A dog unit also searched the campground and high hazard areas, including waterways.

The details surrounding the missing persons case, or where the woman was found haven't been released.

“It could well be the person is somewhere else, but we still need to treat it like she got lost out there in the woods,” Hobler said during yesterday's search.

It was the second call of the day for the Kamloops search team.

At 5 a.m. on Friday, searchers went looking for a pair who went missing after getting their car stuck near Ross Moore Lake, east of Lac Le Jeune. The pair then hiked away from the location they had provided to search and rescue.

Turned out the two received a ride back into town from a fisherman in the area.
