RCMP have now confirmed the body of a male was recovered from the Skeena River today.

But so far there's no sign of the other man and the woman who went missing yesterday in the area approximately 33 kilometres east of Prince Rupert along the Skeena River, say Prince Rupert RCMP.

Their unattended vehicles were located early this morning by an RCMP plane. The trio, who are from Terrace, were expected back yesterday afternoon, November 11th.

Search efforts remain underway, including two boats from Terrace Water Rescue and one from RCMP West Coast Marine Services.

The three people were to have visited Frizzell Hot Springs, one of several in the area.

Names and ages have yet to be released.
