Rescue team searches for three missing people

Hope Search and Rescue called out after quad breaks down in the Skagit Valley

The RCMP and a Hope Search and Rescue team helped locate two missing people and a young boy last Friday after their quad broke down in the Skagit Valley.

Team members were deployed at about 2 p.m. on ATVs and located the group 15 kilometres on a logging road from Silver Lake.

Kent Harrison SAR assisted in bringing them down the mountain to the command post.

Later that day at about 7:50 p.m., Hope SAR was called out by the RCMP for a fatality on Highway 3 at Marker 21 km. The collision involved two semi-trailers and a car. The team arrived on scene to assist with removing the casualty from the car and loading the person into an ambulance.

While driving back to Hope at 8:30 p.m., the Hope SAR team was called to another vehicle accident on Highway 5 to rescue a trapped person.

• Hope Search and Rescue also responded to a single vehicle accident on Highway 1 on the Henderson Bridge, west of Boston Bar on Tuesday at 6:15 p.m. The driver was safely removed from the vehicle before the team returned to base.
