RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in locating the third man reported missing within the week — all in the Nakusp area.

On Thursday, the RCMP were notified by some campers in the Fostal area of a van that appeared to be stuck and had not moved for about five days.

Police determined the van belonged to 71-year-old Kyung Chun of Burnaby.

“His family advised Chun had left with another male presumably to go mushroom picking,” said RCMP in a release. “Unfortunately, no destination was provided to his family.”

The other male told the family that Chun had left the van to pick mushrooms and didn’t return. He stayed for longer and then managed to make it to the highway where he hitchhiked to Revelstoke.

“Unfortunately, the male did not report it to the police at the time and made his way back to the lower mainland,” said RCMP.

The search for Chun began Thursday and continues today. His companion is also being interviewed in hopes of gathering additional information.

Chun does suffer from some health concerns and requires medication. Police are concerned about his health from being outside for a week.

Fostal is located about 25 kilometres south of Nakusp after crossing the Arrow Park Ferry. The van was located a further one-hour drive into the bush where a camp had been established.
