Overnight search for camper

Amidst an ongoing search for a kayaker missing on Okanagan Lake near Kelowna, Central Okanagan Search and Rescue was up all night searching for a missing camper in the Browne Lake area.

COSAR was deployed around sunset, searching the Okanagan Highlands area until 4 a.m. with plans to resume at first light.

“Because our guys had been going wide open since Friday, we called Vernon and Penticton search and rescue for mutual aid. More than a dozen volunteers responded Sunday morning to assist our crews,” said COSAR search manager Duane Tresnich.

The subject of the Browne Lake search—a 24-year-old male—was located by a four-wheeler near Fish Lake and driven back to his camp.

"He was fortunate," said Tresnich. "People need to be aware that temperatures in the high country are just above freezing at night and they should bring appropriate clothing."
