FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The North Peace Search and Rescue are actively searching this morning for a missing boater.
North Peace Search and Rescue President and Search Manager Brian Lamond says that search and rescue crews were called at around 4:30 on Friday morning about a boater who was missing on the Peace River. Lamond says that the missing boater’s truck and trailer were discovered at the Halfway River Bridge, though there was no sign of the truck’s owner or their boat.
