ORIGINAL ARTICLE: MABEL LAKE — The Lumby RCMP is asking for the local public’s assistance in locating missing 57 year old Bruce Van Haastrecht out of the Mabel Lake, British Columbia area.
On April 1, 2017, the Lumby RCMP attended a seasonal residence in the 3500 block of Mabel Lake Road, in efforts to confirm the whereabouts of 57 year old Bruce Van Hasstrecht, who resides permanently in Alberta. As result of police findings at the scene, the Lumby RCMP activated the Vernon Search and Rescue Team along with an RCMP Police Dog team, who conducted a ground Search on Saturday and Sunday with negative results. Search resources also included the support of the RCMP Southeast Dsit Air Services helicopter.
RCMP investigators did find sign and evidence that Bruce Van Hasstrecht was at the lake’s edge at one point prior to his disappearance. A search effort of Mabel Lake itself will resume once the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team arrives in Lumby.
At this time Bruce Van Hasstrecht is considered as missing, however police suspect he may have entered the lake and perished.
