CHASE - RCMP are reminding park goers not to leave people behind when travelling in the region’s backwoods after a pair of young women became lost for a period of time near Chase this weekend.
RCMP say the two, 21-year-old women were with a group driving along logging roads near Adam’s Lake Provincial Park Saturday evening, April 16. When the group paused the two left the vehicles and were left behind.
The group returned to the park and grew concerned for the pair’s safety, calling the police around 8:45 p.m., according to an RCMP media release.
Chase RCMP, the Kamloops RCMP Police Dog Services and search and rescue members were called in to find them.
The two became separated in the woods. Police found one woman while a nearby resident, who’d heard of the search, located the second, police say. Paramedics were at the scene and made sure the women were both in good shape.
Chase police have tips for people if someone is separated while in the woods. They advise to call police immediately and remain at the scene. If you’re one of the people lost, stay together. This makes it easier to find everyone.
