Online Donations Welcome As Families Refuse To End Search

The search for a small plane and its two occupants missing near Revelstoke is now gathering private donations online.

The small craft carrying 28 year old pilot Dominic Neron and 31 year-old Ashley Bourgeault went missing November 26th.

Kate Sinclair is Neron's Sister In-Law, and says that the newly created fundraising page is the back-bone of their search  "The funds are going to go to our direct search and rescue efforts here. Right now, we do have to hire out our own helicopters, which can be very costly, so it just goes directly to that to bring Ashley and Dominic back home."

Family members are also asking all back-country users to keep an eye out for the small plane, and encourage anyone with tips to contact RCMP in Revelstoke at 250-837-5255 as soon as possible.

You can visit that fundraising page via this link.

That page had brought in about $5,000 in just 16 hours.
