Search On Salmon River Resumed

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 @ 8:34 AM

Prince George, B.C.-  Prince George Search and Rescue were back  at the Salmon River this morning at 7, resuming the search for two people who went missing yesterday afternoon.

The two were part of a snowmobiling group  that  was on the ice or going through the water when one man either fell though the ice or fell into the river.  Two other men jumped in to rescue him, but only one managed to get out.

The two  missing men are   from Prince George  and are aged 36 and 31.

Prince George Search and Rescue was on scene   until 2 this morning,   then  returned  to resume  their efforts  at 7 a.m.

They expect to be in the area for most of the day,  after which they will reassess and make a decision on  whether or not they will continue  to look for the two.

A helicopter will assist in today’s  search efforts.

RCMP ad  Search and Rescue  appreciate that people would like to help, but  ask that the  public  stay clear of the area  as the ice is very  unstable, and  people are putting themselves in grave danger.
