More of the same for the volunteer search crew, more 4 wheeling around the trails and road to the West of Hogsback lake, some small grid searches along the highway near Blackwater road and on private property North of Hogsback and other areas, and other searches around various rivers and falls. Landowners are continuing being asked to search their property. There was a fair bit of activity by the RCMP at the Hogsback campsite and the surrounding area, and we are hopeful they are making headway in the investigation.
