A woman reported missing from her home in White Rock turned up safe and sound in Nelson last week.

Police say Janet Falkner, a resident of Nelson and area on and off for the past seven years, contacted them after hearing in the media that she was considered missing.

White Rock RCMP said Falkner was last seen leaving her home there about a month ago.

Deer rescued

A conservation officer freed a deer wrapped in about two metres of orange snow fencing hanging from its antlers last week.

It had been spotted in various places around town in the previous 10 days or so. Police and conservation found the animal in the 200 block of High Street.

The conservation officer tranquilized the deer, and once it nodded off, removed the fencing. The officer remained on the scene until the deer, which appeared to be in good health, woke up.

“In addition to the entanglement hampering the deer in its normal activities such as feeding, the bright orange fencing would certainly not been much help to the deer, during this, the middle of hunting season,” Sgt. Paul Burkart says.

Occupy Nelson rally peaceful

Police say they had no problems with the Occupy Nelson rally on Saturday. Burkart says they were “pleased with the attitude of the demonstrators, organizers and those in vehicles on the streets that may have been inconvenienced by the demonstrators.”

Burkart says organizers did a “nice job” of keeping everyone safe.
