A Cherryville area creek has claimed more lives this summer.
Two men were walking along Monashee Creek Saturday afternoon when they fell 200 feet into the creek, near the Goldpanner Campground.
A 22-year-old Peachland man is dead as a result of the incident and a 20-year-old Kelowna man remains missing.
Members of the Vernon Search and Rescue unit were on scene throughout the weekend.
In May, a 31-year-old Vernon went missing in Monashee Creek after he allegedly went into the creek to retrieve his dog.
