Search suspended for missing American paddler
The search for a missing Virgina man in Bugaboo Creek, west of Brisco, has been suspended however investigators will continue to investigate.
Late yesterday evening (June 20), following exhaustive search efforts by police and search and rescue teams, it was determined the search for Peter Jolles would be suspended, despite him not being located.
“At this point, we have exhausted land and air search efforts,” stated Sgt. Darren Kakuno of the Columbia Valley RCMP, “and conditions are far too dangerous for continued water efforts. We will look at these opportunities in the future when water levels recede.”
While search efforts have been suspended, the Columbia Valley RCMP will continue to investigate until such time that Jolles is located, added Kakuno.
If you have information about Peter’s whereabouts, you are asked to contact the Columbia Valley RCMP at 1-250-342-9292 and cite file 2022-1463.
