RCMP believe Wall, who was last seen Friday, may have made it out of wooded area

UPDATE: The RCMP now believe Joshua Wall may have made it out of the wooded area near Roaches Line and back onto Roaches Line itself. They are asking for residents in the area to check their properties, vehicles, sheds and any other buildings in case Wall sought shelter there.

If you have any information, the RCMP asks you to call the Bay Roberts detachment at 709-786-2118.

The Cormorant out of 9 Wing Gander that has been supporting search efforts today will do one more pass of the area this evening.


EARLIER STORY: The RCMP says that Joshua Wall has not been located and that ground search efforts by Bay Roberts RCMP and the Avalon North Wolverines Search and Rescue have been suspended until morning.

Joshua Wall, 26, is missing after leaving the Roaches Line area Friday afternoon, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said in a press release on Saturday.

Severe weather conditions stopped search efforts from happening on Friday.

On Saturday, the Bay Roberts RCMP and the Avalon North Wolverines Search and Rescue are using a snowmobile and an Argo all-terrain vehicle to search for the man who was on his way to a friends house in Marysvale, the press release said.

A CH149 Cormorant from 9 Wing Gander will also assist the search.

Wall is thought to be in a wooded area between Roaches Line and Marysvale.
