Revelstoke RCMP and Search and Rescue came up empty during a new search for Joshua Jeffs Saturday morning.

“The two areas, near Echo Lake and the end of the road at 12 Mile, were extensively searched utilizing trained ground search crews as well as two dog teams,” said Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky of the Revelstoke RCMP in an e-mail. “The search was concluded later in the day with no success in finding anything related to Jeffs.”

Jeffs, 23, went missing early on December 19, after he fled from police in a vehicle that was reported stolen.

The Manitoba-native fled south down Airport Way, to the end of the road past 12 Mile, and fled into the woods.

He has not been seen since.

Jeffs’ mother was present for Saturday’s search.

Grabinsky said there was no plans for future searches in the area. “We have conducted four searches in total at this point, and have never recovered anything to assist or lead us to conduct a further search,” he said. “If new information is obtained we will return to the search area.”
