The search has been called off for a boater in his 70’s, missing on the north coast.
He was attempting a solo journey in a rowboat from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy on nothern Vancouver Island, and was last seen leaving Aristazabal Island 140-miles north of Port Hardy on July 11th.
Despite a complete search of the entire route three times by a Cormorant helicopter and a Buffalo aircraft from CFB Comox, no a trace of the man was found.
He was an experienced outdoorsman and did have an emergency beacon with him.
It’s now been turned over to Prince Rupert RCMP as a missing persons case.
