One man missing after avalanche in northeastern B.C., Chetwynd RCMP

BY , Feb 4, 2020 2:20 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

A man is missing after an avalanche in northeastern B.C. and RCMP say they won't be able to launch a search until snow conditions improve in the area.

RCMP in Chetwynd say the man was with a group of snowmobilers in the area where the snow came down.

Police say they had received a signal from an emergency beacon on Sunday.

The signal came from the east face of the Murray Mountain Range, south of Pine Le Moray Provincial Park. Mounties say they called for help from search and rescue, but weather conditions and the potential risk of more avalanches forced a delayed in the search.

They say search and rescue, RCMP air and police dog services with avalanche training will start searching when conditions are safe.
