The RCMP say the 46-year-old man who was reported missing near Kejimkujik National Park in Annapolis County on July 1st has been located and is safe.


A search is underway for a 46-year-old man who was reported missing after being overdue from a three-day canoeing and camping trip to Kejimkujik National Park.

Bradley Hall and a nine-year-old girl left Milford House on Friday and planned to paddle the Mersey River, aiming to arrive at Jake's Landing on Sunday.

The actual search area is outside the park's boundary and searchers have been on scene since the time of the initial call on Monday.

The RCMP say the canoe was located abandoned along the route, and searchers found two campsites which indicated the pair headed inland once they left the canoe.

The girl was found safe and uninjured shortly after 1:30 p.m. today and the search of the ground and shoreline for Hall continues, with support from the air.

Hall is described as an Indigenous man, with grey medium length hair, and brown eyes, who was wearing a brown long sleeve shirt, tan pants, and brown shoes.

The RCMP say the pair were in a red, 15-foot long canoe which had "Mad River Canoe" on the side.

They had a large tent which was blue, teal, and beige.

Police and searchers are requesting that anyone who saw the missing people call them immediately to assist with the search effort.
