Deserted campsite puzzling

  • Aug. 5, 2009 7:00 a.m.

The case of the abandoned camp has been closed – almost. Masset RCMP were made aware of a deserted but fully-equipped campsite on the east coast of Graham Island near Mayer Creek on July 23. The campsite contained two set up tents, two sleeping bags, cooking supplies, fishing rods, fishing equipment, clothing and other assorted camping supplies and had been abandoned for two to five days. Air and ground searches conducted by Island Search and Rescue and the RCMP determined that no individuals were in the area, but further investigation by Naikoon Park staff revealed the identity of an individual believed to be associated the site. Corporal Jim Dehoog of the Masset RCMP says that the RCMP have confirmed the individual is safe, but have not been able to speak with the individual to confirm that the site was theirs. “Police are no longer considering this a missing person investigation,” said Corporal Dehoog.
