Default Found a canoe at Pitt Lake

Hello,

Today I was walking on the dike and somewhere in the middle of the dike saw a empty solo canoe floating on its own near the shore. It was grey inside, red outside. The phrase "Widgeon creeek. The place to be" was written on one side of the boat.
I pulled it out from the water and put between 2 logs - that should prevent it from being taken by the high tide. Wanted to speak with the canoe rental guys at "Pitt Lake Canoe Adventures" but nobody was at reception and I just left.

Contact RCMP about possible missing persons?

Yes, it did not occur to me that I might have to report that to RCMP.
Anyway, tried to call Coquitlam RCMP right now (8PM) using the non-emergency line - the lady was not interested, saying that there was no such road (Rannie Rd) on her map and suggested to call RCMP Maple Ridge instead.
Called them, one can report on a crime in progress or on a found bike and looks like that's all what their phone system/menu allows for late calls. Will try tomorrow one more time just to make sure that I have done all I could.
