I am surpised the search has come up negative, the area does not seem that large, of course the wooded areas are not easy to comb through and there is plenty of steep areas that are simply not ground searchable by most people.

I don't think this guy got lost, if they say he's the type that leads other hikers. That area is hard to get lost in, at least not for a full week. He should be somewhere close to the trail. There are a ton of bears in the area. So who knows...

Also surprised the search has come up empty.... my guess he may have had a fall and got buried by some rock debris, in which case he might not be visible. Search should probably look at fresh looking rockfalls or debris falls. Or perhaps he slipped down into a steep forest area, heather slopes perhaps, and then hidden from view by trees, shrubbery, and etc..


Not sure if there is any snow in the area; snow slides, snow caves.... ..


Then there is the mention of bears, hope this thought is ruled out...

Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............

SAR was using their own UAVs in this search. Amateurs, however experienced they are as UAV pilots, would not add anything additional IMHO, anymore than experienced campfire snuffers should show up and help the fire department at a five-alarm blaze.

So sad. My condolences to Gord's family and friends.

Stay safe out there everyone.

Just goes to show that no matter how experienced you are bad stuff can still happen to you. I purchased a SPOT locator a few weeks ago after talking to one of the friends of the 2 hikers that went missing 6 years ago near valentine lake. He was saying that if they had that track mode on they might of been found. It's probably not perfect but for the price it's not a bad device especially if you travel solo a lot. Hopefully they find Gord.

Sad to hear the search was been called off. I have been trying to find the details on how and where he went missing but I haven't been able to find anything. At first I thought he took off ahead of the group to go summit additional mountains but after reading some more articles it looks like they were all heading back to the vehicles and went missing on the way down? Is there anywhere I can read what actually happened?

Looking for the same answer to make some sort of plan.

The family has set up a Go Fund Me page in order to continue the search and they have the support of SAR and the RCMP. Here is the link: https://www.gofundme.com/2k63gdg

You can also like the "Bring Gord Home" Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Bring-Gord-...59864/?fref=ts

You can also message me and I'll put you in touch with Ed Kumar who is one of Gord's close friends and is acting as liaison for the family.

Thank you so much for your continued help and support!!
