Delta Police say the search for a boater on the Fraser River has been called off.
Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallows says police took over the search from the Coast Guard. But with no sight of the 30-year-old missing since Saturday, it’s now a case of wait and see.
“Unfortunately, the man who went overboard didn’t know how to swim and wasn’t wearing a life jacket. It doesn’t look like any alcohol involved or any sort of suspicious element or any sort of personal or mental health issues.”
Swallows says the man was with a friend when their boat ran out of fuel and drifted under the Alex Fraser Bridge.
He fell overboard trying to dislodge the boat.
