Search for missing kayaker resumed on the Slocan River over the weekend
The Search for a missing kayaker resumed over the weekend on the Slocan River.
A 56 year old woman went missing on the river close to two weeks ago, and the search was suspended after two days,
Teams from Nelson, Rossland, and Grand Forks spent the weekend searching a section of the river that has multiple log jams.
Officials say searching the Log Jams is very dangerous and hard work for Swiftwater technicians and it takes a considerable amount of time to search each one safely for members.
They also had a helicopter in the area to help with getting technicians into the area and transportation.
They were asking the public to stay away from the area so searchers could do their work.
