Missing snowmobiler found dead on mountain near Revelstoke

December 11, 2015 - 10:00 AM

REVELSTOKE, B.C. - The body of a missing snowmobiler has been found on a mountain near Revelstoke.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky says Travis Brown's body was found in the rugged Boulder Mountain area Thursday afternoon, Dec. 10, by some snowmobilers.

It appears that Brown, who was 42 and from Drayton Valley, Alta., got lost in poor weather and deep snow and wasn't able to get back to the parking lot.

Grabinsky says Brown was last spotted on Saturday riding his machine on the mountain.

The local snowmobile association notified police when Brown did not returned to his truck.

A search-and-rescue operation began on Monday, but was called off two days later because crews didn't have any new information to follow up.
