Breaking: Missing Person Search Underway

Updated: Jun 9, 2023

Hiker last seen on Mount Harvey


Editor's Note: In light of the outcome of yesterday's search, The Watershed has removed the picture of the missing hiker.


Police are seeking public assistance to locate a hiker who has gone missing in the trails above Lions Bay, according to a press release issued by Corporal Angela Kermer, of the Sea to Sky RCMP this morning.


Staff Sergeant Bradley of the Sea to Sky RCMP Squamish confirmed to The Watershed that the search continues for a Vancouver man who set off on a hike yesterday. His vehicle remains parked near Lions Bay School.


Lions Bay Search and Rescue (LBSAR) is engaged in the search, and the police are asking hikers and local residents to keep their eyes open for the missing man.


He is described as an Asian male, 29 years old, 172 cm (5’8’’) tall with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a red North Face jacket and carried a black backpack.


Police were notified when the man didn't return yesterday as expected. "We want hikers to know how important it is that they tell someone where they are going, and when they expect to return," said Bradley.


UPDATE:


The Watershed has spoken with hiker Kaie Rosborough as she returned from her own hike down Mount Harvey this morning. Kaie, who suspected she was the first up the mountain this morning, reported seeing footprints in the snow right to the top of Mount Harvey, and returning down as far as the snow line. There the prints deviated from the path, and headed off in another direction. Rosborough completed her own hike, and her observations have been reported to Lions Bay SAR.


Anyone with any further information is asked to contact the Squamish RCMP at 604-892-6100, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or go to the website www.solvecrime.ca.
