The search for two missing snowshoers on Cypress Mountain remains suspended because of dangerous weather conditions.
43-year-old Roy Tin Hou Lee, and 64-year-old Chun Sek Lam have been missing for four days – since Christmas Day.
North Shore Rescue team leader Mike Danks says the search remains temporarily suspended.
“If we do have an opportunity to get an aircraft up today, we will do that. But with the current weather, it’s just not possible at this time.”
Danks says members are on standby, looking for any window to head back up on Cypress Mountain.
“The area that we’re really focusing on now is the Mount Strachan area; those are in avalanche terrain. We’ve seen multiple and natural releases in those areas in the last couple days.”
He says members are staying positive, but conditions on the mountain are deteriorating.
