The massive search effort on Gabriola Island for a missing 75-year old man continued for a third day today.
David Hepper was last seen Sunday afternoon before he went for a hike near his home, but he never returned.
Teams from as far as Squamish and Surrey have joined the search.
39 people were out in teams today conducting a grid search in a specific area off north road on Gabriola, searching 5 metres apart through fairly rough terrain.
Still, there was no sign of Hepper today.
He was properly dressed for a hike but not to remain outdoors for this long
