Clearwater RMCP report that BC Ambulance requested the assistance of police to set up a landing zone for the air ambulance following an ATV collision.

The collision took place on private property in Little Fort.

An 11-year-old had been driving an ATV with two other minors without helmets. There was a problem with the throttle and the ATV went down a small bank, hitting a fence and throwing the children off the ATV.

The youngest was air-lifted to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops for a head injury.

Missing male

Clearwater RCMP received a report from 100 Mile RCMP of a missing elderly male who was said to be last seen traveling on a motorcycle near Little Fort.

Police located the male, who had no idea where he was going or where he was supposed to be.

The male was transported to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops to check his wellbeing.

Skeletal remains located

Clearwater RCMP were advised of skeletal remains that had been located on Foghorn Forest Service Road near Birch Island.

A male hiker located the bones and was unsure if they were human or if they belonged to a black bear.

Photographs were sent to the local Conservation Officer and the Coroner’s Office. They were confirmed to be from a black bear.
