Missing Nakusp man found

The man reported missing from Nakusp was found safe and sound, report RCMP.

A missing 55-year-old Nakusp man has been located “safe and sound” report RCMP.

Missing since last Friday morning, Steven Schroff called home to check in with family and RCMP were notified shortly before 9 a.m. this morning. The call came from his sister advising the missing man had heard an announcement on the radio and called to say he was safe.

“He reported that he had been camping, out of cell range, and had vehicle trouble. He was able to fix his vehicle and make it to Grand Forks,” said an RCMP media release.

Schroff told his family he was going to Spokane when he left his home but never arrived at his destination. US Border Services confirmed he never crossed the border.

The RCMP would like to remind people to advise family or friends of their travel plans and/or camping location in the event unforeseen incidents such as this occur.
