Disoriented on New Year’s Eve

Search and Rescue officials conducted a successful overnight New Year’s hunt for a 61-year-old Campbell River man who had become “disoriented” during a fishing outing along the Oyster River.

Campbell River RCMP Sergeant Craig Massey reports that the angler was found in good condition on a logging road at 8 a.m. New Year’s Day.

At  8:30 p.m. New Year’s Eve Campbell River RCMP received a report of the lost fisherman. A Campbell River male reported that he and his father had been fishing in the area at approximately 3:30 p.m. when they became separated.

“When his father failed to return to their vehicle he enlisted the assistance of additional family members. Campbell River Search and Rescue searched throughout the night eventually locating the 61-year-old Campbell River male at approximately 8 a.m., “ Sgt. Massey reports. “The father had walked the Oyster River for some time and had then become disoriented. He walked through the night ending up on a logging road where he was located by Search and Rescue in good condition.”

Also on Dec. 31t at 8:45 p.m. Campbell River RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter at Fountain Tire. Sgt. Massey reports that an unknown suspect broke a window to gain access. Once inside the suspect removed a tool box prior to fleeing the scene.  Anyone with information on this offence is asked to contact the RCMP or Crimestoppers.
