The search for a missing Salmo man is expected to centre around Highway 3 between the Paulson Bridge and Christina Lake today.

South Columbia Search and Rescue President Mike Hudson says there will be aircraft in the area, both fixed wing and helicopter, along with several search and rescue teams from around the region to do a large search.

Based on some tips into the RCMP, the area is of interest.

They're asking motorists to drive carefully through the area, and to watch for search and rescue vehicles, who will be driving vehicles, quads, and UTV's.

58 year old Cory Thomas McKay was last seen June 18th at the Shell Gas Station in Castlegar, driving his black 1994 Triumph Motorcycle.
