The search continues for missing Revelstoke man Bradley Cadden. Each day teams of volunteers, assisted by Revelstoke RCMP and Revelstoke Search & Rescue, search by ground, by air, with dogs, on snowmobiles, or with personal drones.
According to his friends and family, Cadden was last seen working at his remote cabin at Downie RV Resort 75 km up Highway 23 North. It is unknown when he arrived at his cabin, the resort is generally uninhabited during winter, and there is no cell service in the area.
Cadden’s wife reported him missing to the police on March 13 after not hearing for him for a prolonged period. Going several days without contact was not unusual, but more than a week was ‘out of character’.
When police arrived, they discovered Cadden was not there, and there was ‘no sign that he intended to leave back to town’.
To this point, two people in the area of Downie RV Resort have reported sightings of Cadden between the time he arrived there and when he went missing.
On March 5, one resident reported seeing Cadden next to his truck which was stuck on the snowy access road leading to his cabin. They tried to assist him in pulling his truck out of the snow, but their attempts failed. They returned the next day to help with the truck, but at that point, Cadden was nowhere to be seen, and they assumed he had gotten a ride back to Revelstoke.
Another resident reported seeing Cadden on March 5, this time later in the afternoon at approximately 3:15 pm. At that time, Cadden was sitting in the front of his cabin, smiling and waving goodbye as the person who reported the sighting was leaving. They recalled him wearing a light brown Carhartt jacket.
His friends and family added that Cadden is an avid outdoorsman who often takes long walks, sometimes up to 20 km at a time. His family believes he could have left for a walk on the afternoon of March 5 or 6. They added that Cadden has the survival skills to survive in the wilderness, leading them to hold out hope.
The public can assist in the search for Cadden by reporting any sightings or tips to the Revelstoke RCMP and by joining the search’s Facebook page.
“Bradley’s family and friends miss him dearly,” said a friend of Cadden. “Please help us bring him home.”
