Search And Rescue Staff Locate Missing Teen

RCMP in Salmon Arm have detailed the overnight rescue of an 18 year old male.

Police say that the teen was drinking with friends in the area of 30th Street NE when he became upset and ran off around 8:45PM.

A release says that his friends searched for him for over an hour, and later called Police because of concerns that their friend had left while wearing only shorts and a hat.

RCMP called in Search and Rescue for an urban search, and the male was found near midnight in a parked vehicle near the Highway. 

Police say the male was found asleep in the vehicle, and is said to be physically OK.

Salmon Arm RCMP are thanking Search and Rescue for their role on this file.

No further details are expected.
