According to the South Columbia Search and Rescue, a 17-year-old in British Columbia, who has not been named, formed himself to be sheltered as a snow cave after splitting from his group.
At around 6:15 pm on Saturday, the 100 Mile House Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) was informed of an overdue snowmobiler.
According to an RCMP news report, Kishore’s family and friends returned to the parking lot, but he never showed up.
Some of the party stayed on the hill and began the search, while others left to alert South Caribo Search and Rescue, who approached the 100-mile RCMP. The South Cariboo SAR eventually found the teenager “in good condition”, the RCMP said in its release.
The post continued, “When our team members came to visit him, he was sheltered with food and water. This young man made our work a little difficult by staying in place and knowing the existence of some backward winter.”
The 100 Mile House RCMP thanked the South Caribou SAR team for bringing the search for a more positive result.
“We are very fortunate in South Caribou to have a dedicated group of well-trained volunteers to assist in times of need,” RCMP Cpl. Madonna Saunderson wrote in a statement.
