River search yields lone boat
An exhaustive air, ground and water search turned up nothing following a report of an empty boat and a person in the Thompson River near Rabbit Island on the weekend.
Kamloops Mounties were called just after 8:30 p.m. on Friday, June 15, after someone apparently spotted a boat floating down the river, with a person nearby in the water.
Police, fire and search and rescue crews scoured the river and banks on Friday night and the following morning, but found nothing.
The RCMP helicopter as well as police and fire boats were used in the search.
