Search for two missing people in Campbell River suspended

The search for two people who went missing while they were near Woods Creek on an ATV Sunday has been suspended for the night.

Campbell River Search and Rescue (SAR) have confirmed they had been searching the area since around 1 p.m. According to Campbell River SAR, the two people who are missing were on an ATV that may have been either trying to cross the creek or slipped into the creek. Three people were thrown into the water and one person was rescued.

Officials also said the creek is overflowing due to last night’s storm and the water is still going fast.

Multiple search agencies were involved in the search and a helicopter is being used. The Canadian Coast Guard was also searching the water near Shelter Point and Stories Beach. The search is set to resume in the morning.
