Search for woman in northwestern B.C. called off

She had first been reported missing north of Terrace on Dec. 21

RCMP say a search for a woman missing on a lake north of Terrace, B.C. has been called off.

“We have exhausted all search options,” said Terrace RCMP Constable  Angela Rabut of a search of Kalum Lake which began after the woman, 43, was reported missing Dec. 21.

The report came in at 9 p.m. that day and police then found the woman’s truck that evening, parked at the Kalum Lake boat launch.

“Search and rescue found her canoe on Kalum Lake in the early hours of the morning of December 22,” said Rabut.

Search efforts included using a local helicopter, a police service dog and members of Terrace Search and Rescue.
