RCMP in Łútsël K’é say they have located the 74-year-old man who was reported missing on Tuesday after he did not return to the community from a boating trip on Monday as planned.
According to an update from police on Wednesday, Edward Prince was safely located about 45 minutes away from Łútsël K’é and is now back in the community.
“Aside from being hungry and cold, he was in good health,” RCMP said.
The man originally left Łútsël K’é on an unspecified date alone headed toward a cabin near Basille Bay, located about 70 kilometres west of the community.
RCMP said anyone going out on the land or water should share travel plans with others, be prepared for emergencies, and have a reliable means of communication in case a problem occurs.
