This map shows the nearly 16 kilometre distance between where missing mushroom picker Ike Murray was last seen on Sept. 22 and where he was found today at 4 p.m. Search and Rescue crews are currently searching the area for the still missing Michael Devlin Sabo.

Search is on for second missing mushroom picker

After nearly two weeks, one of the two missing mushroom pickers has been found alive near Terrace, B.C.

  • Oct. 7, 2013 8:00 a.m.

THE search for at least one of the two men who went missing more than two weeks ago east of Terrace while mushroom picking is over.

Terrace RCMP have confirmed that Ike Murray was located by CN railworkers in the area of Cedarvale today at approximately 4 p.m. He was transported by Emergency Health Services to Mills Memorial Hospital where he is in stable condition,” reads the RCMP release issued late this afternoon.

Terrace Search and Rescue has identified the area where they think Michael Devlin Sabo, who was lost with Murray, might be located.

Terrace Search and Rescue members along with RCMP officers have resumed the search for Sabo and are at the location now.

“Let’s hope we find Devlin tonight,” said Terrace RCMP Constable Angela Rabut.

She said Murray was discovered alongside CN’s railtracks by the CN workers.

Cedarvale is several kilometres east of where the two young men went missing near Lorne Creek on the north side of the Skeena River Sept. 22.

One of the largest searches in several decades in the region failed to find any trace of the two men and was called off Sept. 29.

Rabut said Murray, although showing the effects of his two weeks in the bush, was suffering no other physical injuries.

She said Murray has told officials he and Sabo were together for most of the time, however Murray was the only one who made it to the train tracks.

An unofficial search, which began after the official one was called off, had started extending east of Lorne Creek this past weekend, but had not gone all the way to Cedarvale.

“Sometimes when people are in the bush they can act erratically and that’s when you need to stop and remember what the old saying is, hug a tree,” said Rabut.
