Anyone with information about their whereabouts are asked to call the Quesnel RCMP at 250-992-9211.


Last time there was a missing person I made a comment that you should always let someone know where you are going when you venture into the woods, actually JGalt did as well and we were ridiculed by many. I wonder if those who ridiculed us still think there is no need to let someone know your travel plans?

I believe in this article that it states where they were headed.

    I totally agree with letting loved ones know where you are going and when to expect your return, however, some times we make last minute decisions and change our plans without letting others know! I truly hope this is not the case here. Hoping for a positive outcome.

travel plans. other possible alternatives to the plan. Stick to it. Don’t go beyond what you have said.

don’t know the details but wish I was there looking

I hope they are found soon and in good health.

I remember the post stating that people should let someone know where they are going, however I don’t remember anyone ridiculing the idea.

Just heard they were found by Dunkley chopper. Both safe and sound.
