Terrace RCMP have confirmed that the body of Devlin Sabo, the second missing mushroom picker, was located by Terrace Search and Rescue early this morning approximately six kilometers up Fiddler Creek near the Skeena River.
"Our condolences go out to the Sabo family. It was very important that we find Devlin to bring closure to this tragic set of events," says Cst Angela Rabut, Community Policing/Media Relations Officer Terrace RCMP.
Devlin and Ike had become lost early on the first day of their ordeal. They hunkered down in an area that was not included in the massive search that followed over the next seven days.
According to police after a week of waiting the pair made the decision to hike out.
Devlin soon lost strength to continue. Ike stayed with Devlin till his death then managed to hike for two more days and finally hit the railroad tracks where he was shortly discovered by CN maintenance workers.
The Coroner and the Terrace Forensic Identification Unit attended the area where Devlin’s body was located. The matter has been turned over to the Coroner.
Devlin Sabo and Ike Murray had been missing since September 22nd, when they failed to return back to their boat at a set time after picking mushrooms in the area of Lorne Creek along the Skeena River.
