Man found deceased

A man who was missing for 14 days after leaving his Park Ave. home was found dead yesterday.

Daniel Driediger, 50, was found by Delta Creek, about 20 km west of Terrace late in the afternoon of Oct. 4.

Coroner Art Erasmus confirmed that Driediger’s body was found but couldn’t give out any more details about the investigation.

Driediger was last seen Sept. 20 leaving his Park Ave. residence on foot, said police Sept. 26.

Terrace Search and Rescue searched an area on Thornhill Mountain Sept. 27 with no sign of the missing man, said police.

On Oct. 3, Daniel’s wife, Fern, went out with family and friends to look for him out by the Kalum River and nearby mountains but found nothing.

The family had planned to go out Oct. 5 and Oct. 6 to look for Driediger and had asked for volunteers to assist them.
