Body of missing White Rock man David Klammer found by Arrow Lake

Body recovered south of Shelter Bay, about 40 kilometres downstream from the riverside recreation area where his car was found in November

White Rock resident David Klammer was last seen in the Revelstoke area in October

The search has ended for a White Rock man who went missing from the Twelve Mile area south of Revelstoke in October.

On Sunday, May 5, two campers discovered the body of David Klammer, 39, on the west side of the Upper Arrow Lake about 10 kilometres south of Shelter Bay. The BC Coroners Service has officially confirmed the identity.

Shelter Bay is located approximately 50 kilometres south of Revelstoke by highway, across the Upper Arrow Lake reservoir from Twelve Mile.

In a brief statement, the BC Coroners Service and the RCMP said they don’t feel the death is suspicious. Police have always maintained Klammer had no criminal ties.

The BC Coroners Service will perform autopsy on May 9 to determine the cause of death. An RCMP spokesperson said attributing a cause would be speculation at this point.

David Klammer was reported missing on October 21, 2012. Investigators later determined his last known location was in Revelstoke on October 18.

The Revelstoke Times Review has followed this story since Klammer was first reported missing.

His vehicle, which was abandoned at a remote recreation site called Twelve Mile, was reported to authorities on Nov. 5. The next day, police and searchers launched ground searches in the area.

This spring, police conducted a helicopter search of the Columbia River, to no avail.

When search options dwindled, parents Ted and Kathy Klammer appealed for public help finding their lost son, asking those recreating in the backcountry to be on the lookout.
