Search underway for missing Alberta snowmobiler

Revelstoke RCMP asking for help after Alberta man reported missing after not returning from snowmobiling on Saturday.

Revelstoke RCMP are asking for help after an Alberta man went missing while snowmobiling near Revelstoke last weekend.

Police are looking for Travis Allen Brown after he failed to return from a day of snowmobiling solo on Saturday.

According to the RCMP, Brown told a family member he was going snowmobiling by himself at around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5. His family tried to contact him later that afternoon, but his phone was turned off and went straight to voicemail.

The next morning police were notified of a red 2006 Dodge Ram truck that was left in the Boulder Mountain parking lot. A search revealed it was registered to Brown.

On Monday, Brown had not returned to his home in Drayton Valley, Alberta, so police were notified and he was reported as missing.

He is described as a 42-year-old white male, 185 centimetres tall, weighing 77 kilograms, with blond hair and brown eyes. He was believed to be wearing a bright green Helly Hansen snowmobile outfit with a green leaf pattern on the jacket. He would have been wearing a motocross-style helmet, with green camo goggles and riding a red and white 2014 Polaris RMK.

Revelstoke Search and Rescue were out today looking for Brown.

Saturday was a stormy day, with snow throughout the day.

Blakney told the Review that it was Brown’s first time snowmobiling in Revelstoke. His family told police he owned a beacon, but there is no way of knowing if he was wearing it at the time.

Anyone with information on Brown’s whereabouts is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
