Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 23 Feb, 2021
  • ATV rider found dead in Fraser Valley

A man has died while riding his all-terrain vehicle in British Columbia's Fraser Valley.

Kent Harrison Search and Rescue says in a social media post that its members responded late Saturday to reports about the missing 21-year-old.

He had been seen several hours earlier but had not returned from a trip along a forest service road on the east side of Harrison Lake, about 160 kilometres east of Vancouver.

Sixteen searchers scoured roughly 30 kilometres of logging roads through the night and rescue efforts resumed Sunday, with assistance from neighbouring Mission Search and Rescue.

The man was found dead near Cogburn Creek on Sunday.

His cause of death and name have not been released.
