RMSAR, along with Ridge Meadows RCMP, will continue to monitor the water levels to determine when it is safe to resume the search.

As well, RCMP helicopter Air Eight out of Comox searched the length of Gold Creek. Nothing was located.
RMSAR is planning on deploying swiftwater teams again this weekend to search Gold Creek
At 4:30 on Monday afternoon March 13th, Ridge Meadows RCMP contacted us to respond to Blue Mountain for a missing 15 year old dirt biker. The subject and a friend had taken a dirt bike up 256th Street past the gate to take turns riding. When the subject did not return, his friend hiked out to a road and flagged a driver down to take him home to call for help. RMSAR deployed a team on their side by side up a BC Hydro access road at the end of 248th Street while a second team was dispatched up the 256th street access. The subject was located by friends as he was walking back to 256th Street, tired but in good shape.
