It was a short search for local volunteers.

On Thursday at about 10:30 a.m., 14 members of Vernon Search and Rescue were asked by the RCMP to search for a missing male in the Cherryville area.

“The male had been missing since the day before,” said Leigh Pearson, search master.

“A tracking team, members on foot and ATVs were searching around the home, outbuildings  and backroads in the Puckett Road area when they were stood down due to information the RCMP received verifying that he was no longer in the area.”

The SAR members returned to their Coldstream base at 1:30 p.m.
