Search for missing snowshoers called off
The search has been called off for two men missing in the backcountry of Vancouver's North Shore Mountains since Christmas Day.
West Vancouver police Constable Jeff Palmer says crews combed the area yesterday but there were no signs of 43-year-old Roy Lee or 64-year-old Chun Lam.
Palmer says a missing person's investigation for the men will remain open, but police have no reason to believe they are anywhere other than on the mountain.
Efforts to find the men have been ongoing since Sunday, but heavy snow, high winds and risk of avalanche slowed the search.
