KASLO — RCMP have suspended a search for a man who failed to return from a planned canoe trip in B.C.’s Interior.
Mounties say their underwater recovery team and a boat crew who searched Duncan Lake near Kaslo couldn’t find Thomas Schreiber. They say the extensive search on land and water has stopped, but they urged the public to remain watchful for him.
Schreiber of Lardeau is described as 58 years old, Caucasian, 6-foot-2 with brown hair and hazel eyes.
He was last seen by family Tuesday and a search was launched when his pickup was found parked at the boat launch with no canoe. Search-and-rescue personnel found an unoccupied canoe believed to be Schreiber’s in the water on the northeast side of the lake.
