Revelstoke SAR locates missing male along Jordan River FSR

Revelstoke Search and Rescue located a missing male who was walking barefoot along the Jordan River Forest Service Road Friday morning.

Revelstoke Search and Rescue located a missing male who was walking barefoot along the Jordan River Forest Service Road Friday morning.

Ten members of SAR team and three rescue dogs went out on the call, which came in at around 10 a.m., said SAR manager Buck Corrigan.

The rescuers along with an RCMP officer were parked along the forest road just past the bridge over the Jordan River underneath the BC Hydro powerlines. There was a small tent pitched at the spot and a pair of socks was sitting on a rock nearby.

The man, a 28-year-old from Belgium, was found by SAR walking along the road barefoot and wearing only shorts and a t-shirt. Corrigan said he was drinking when he left camp.

Three people, likely the man’s friends, were waiting in a vehicle while the search was going on. They were visibly relieved when news came that he was found just before noon. The man was given a lift back to the campsite by a member of SAR.
