Wiese said volunteers from the community have been out searching for George, but were sent home for the night while Search and Rescue teams continue.

“There were about 100 or more volunteers just from town and the Rangers are out there and the fire department and the RCMP. If people want to help look for him tomorrow, if they still need us and I hope he’s found tonight, they need to have ID with them and can sign in at the Mackenzie Search and Rescue,” she told MyPGNow.
We will be updating with more information as it becomes available.
