Missing Mexican workers found safe

Police aren't saying where four Mexican farm workers who went missing from a BX orchard in June were found, but they are safe

The case of the missing Mexican migrant workers has been solved.

Four Mexican men reported missing June 26 from a BX area orchard where they had been working have been found safe.

But that’s all Vernon RCMP will say at this point.

“The Vernon RCMP has confirmed that the men have been located,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy Wednesday morning, though she did not say where the men were found.

“Vernon RCMP investigators would like to thank the public and media for the assistance received throughout this investigation.”

In June, the RCMP office speculated that the men may have gone to the South Okanagan to work on another orchard but had not checked in with the Mexican consulate to notify them of a change in employment.

All four men came to Canada on June 16.
