Holyrood RCMP and ground search and rescue teams are still searching the Deer Park area of Salmonier Line for a 57-year-old man missing since Wednesday.


As of 4 p.m. Thursday, the man still had not been located. He was reportedly ice fishing on Hawco’s Pond and did not return home Wednesday. Police advise it is not safe to walk on ice due to recent warm weather.

Three ground search and rescue teams have assisted police. Police dogs, two hovercrafts and a helicopter have also been deployed since the search began.

The search is expected to continue Friday in the event no progress is made Thursday.
