UPDATE: Prince George Search and rescue have confirmed that Kieran and Sammy have been found in good condition.
The vehicle they were driving became stuck while driving the back roads from Prince George to Vanderhoof. Seventeen people from Prince George Search and Rescue, twelve from Nechako Valley Search and Rescue, four from Quesnel Search and Rescue, and three aircraft were involved in the search.
At approximately 12:45 PM, Prince George Search & Rescue received a call from one of the missing persons. They were on the Batnuni Forest Service Road, significantly south of where they should have been. A truck driver located them with vehicle trouble last night and took them to a nearby camp for the night.
Prince George RCMP, Prince George SAR and Nechako Valley SAR are currently searching for a missing couple.
Sister of of the missing, Hannah Friesen says the last time anyone heard from her brother Kieran Friesen and his fiance Sammy Morin, they were leaving a family gathering in Prince George, heading to Vanderhoof on Saturday night.
“They left here (PG) at about 930pm, and we heard from them at 10ish. That was when one of his low beam headlights went out, so he said that he was going to take the Blackwater route home so he could use his high beams.”
Hannah says Keiran and Sammy are both 23 years old, and behaviour like this is very unusual for them.
“We were supposed to go snowshoeing with them Sunday morning, we definitely should have heard from them.”
