Painful news for the family and friends of a hiker who hasn’t been seen for more than a week.
Chilliwack Search and Rescue says they’re calling off the search for Gord Sagoo in Baby Munday Peak.
The experienced hiker disappeared last Sunday, spotted travelling with two friends but after wandering off to another peak, never saw them again.
His family had said it was an agonizing time and made public appeals to find him.
Search and Rescue says they reviewed all aspects of their operation and the decision was made by Mounties to suspend the search.
They’ve offered their condolences to the family.
The family released a statement saying they will continue the search privately via other channels.
They also say they have not given up hope of finding Gordon.
