Kamloops Search and Rescue on standby in search of missing man

KAMLOOPS - Victoria Day was a busy one for Kamloops Search and Rescue as members assisted an injured hiker and remain on standby in search of a missing man.

Alan Hobler with the service said the team rescued an injured woman on a trail near Paul Lake. Hobler said the woman slipped on small pebbles and twisted her ankle.

“It looked like she probably broke her ankle,” he said.

The team returned home around 7 p.m. but received a second call out a half hour later. Hobler said the call was to assist Kamloops Fire Rescue and RCMP with a search for a missing person.

“It’s unknown what happened to the subject,” Hobler said. He added the man’s vehicle was found abandoned near the Thompson River.

RCMP officers are using the district helicopter to continue their search of the river today, May 19.
