Search for missing woman wound down

Courtney Buck presumed drowned and considered as missing

Current search efforts for Courtney Buck along the North Thompson River south of Clearwater have been completed as of Wednesday, Dec. 12.

On Wednesday the Clearwater RCMP and local Search and Rescue teams completed all possible search efforts along the North Thompson River.

Courtney Buck was not located during the extensive efforts. Mrs Buck is now classified as missing and presumed drowned.

The search, which had been ongoing since Dec. 9, included air search by the Southeast District RCMP Air Services helicopter, ground searches by RCMP and local Search and Rescue volunteers, and Department of Fisheries and Oceans vessels on the water.

Clearwater RCMP will continue to consult with local Search and Rescue technicians to assess further search efforts as river conditions and water levels change.

The RCMP Air Services crews and Department of Fisheries and Oceans also remain aware and will conduct future patrols during the normal course of their duties in this area.

Clearwater RCMP and BC Coroners Services continue their investigations and are providing support to the affected families and the local community.
