Public asked to investigate aerial videos of Grouse Mountain for clues on missing British tourist
North Shore Rescue is asking the public to scour through aerial videos of Grouse Mountain for any anomalies that could lead to missing British tourist Tom Billings.
The first of three videos was released last Friday afternoon (Dec. 27) on YouTube through northshorerescue.com.
“If you see something that’s not right — an arm, a leg, any anomaly — forward the information to us,” North Shore Rescue leader Tim Jones told The Outlook, adding Billings’ chance of survival is, unfortunately, slim.
“He had nothing with him. All he had was a black winter jacket with a hood, a green shirt, grey pants, boots and a camera. He had no pack.”
At the time of his disappearance, Billings was carrying a Nikon Coolpix camera.
The other two videos and a series of photos will be released over the weekend. Anyone who spots something out of the ordinary is asked to contact North Shore Rescue. Instructions are given on the website.
The latest search and rescue effort, which includes extensive aerial recon, is being funded by the Billings family.
On Dec. 23, a suspicious object spotted from the sky during a sweep of the North Shore mountains prompted North Shore Rescue to conduct a thorough search of a Mount Seymour drainage area — in the hopes of finding clues.
