RCMP in northwestern BC are looking for Darrell Grace.

Police hunt for suspect in northwestern BC

Darrell Frederick Grace, 40, has outstanding warrants out of Prince George, Alberta and Manitoba, report police.

A WANTED man who was the subject of a manhunt in the Nass Valley that began yesterday may be headed to Terrace, say RCMP.

Darrell Frederick Grace, 40, has outstanding warrants out of Prince George, Alberta and Manitoba, report police.

Their search for Grace began yesterday when officers from the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment were called to investigate suspicious activities at a rural acreage at 1718 Nisga’a Hwy at Nass Camp.

Officers spoke to two men, who lived in two different cabins on the property.

Officers then said Grace fled on foot into a heavily forested area nearby as police were conducting further checks.

A police dog service team from Terrace tracked the suspect through the thick forest and heavy snow for more than three hours, said Sgt. Donovan Tait, the officer commanding of the Lisims/Nass Valley detachment.

Officers set up a perimeter around Nass Camp and the Nisga’a Hwy and advised area residents and motorists of the happenings.

“Police do not believe that Grace is a danger to the public or has access to weapons,” said Tait.

Grace was only wearing a t-shirt with a light jacket, jeans and boots and police are concerned  for his well-being and safety as temperatures dropped well below zero last night and he may have overnighted in the bush.

Grace is believed to be a mushroom harvester and knows the wooded areas and back country very well.

Officers stopped the search as darkness fell last night. The search continues today.

Anyone who knows of Grace’s whereabouts are asked to call Tait at the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment at 250-633-2222.
