Terrace Search and Rescue continues to scour the river for a missing man and his truck.

Dustin Steele, 23, was last seen on November 1 at approximately 9 p.m. in the Copper Flats area, reported Terrace RCMP Nov. 3.

Basically, we’re assisting the RCMP and trying to search for the vehicle and possibly him in the river,” said Dave Jephson of Terrace Search and Rescue, adding that the search team of about six has been looking for two days now.

The weather is awful,” said Jephson.

The problem is the wind blows us around and the rain is freezing our guys.”

More people coming out to search won’t help and neither would more boats on the river, he added about comments from people on social media about going out to search themselves.

We’ll keep going until the RCMP advises us to stop,” said Jephson.

Steele is described as Caucasian, 5 ft 11 inches tall, with orange hair, weighs 180 lbs and was wearing a grey under armour hoodie and jeans.
