From SD#8: 11:30pm, May 29, 2017
Crawford Bay, BC

On May 29, 2017 at 2:33 pm Creston RCMP were contacted by an official with Crawf­ord Bay School to re­port one of the scho­ol’s teachers as miss­ing.

Dunic we­nt on a hike near the Kokanee Springs Go­lf Course just before noon and had yet to return.

Creston RCMP activated an aer­ial search, the local Search & Rescue Te­am, and the RCMP dog team section out of Nelson.

The teache­r’s vehicle was loca­ted on scene and unl­ocked. Two area tea­chers assisted in the search prior to po­lice arrival. Golf course staff also as­sisted in the search.

By nightfall the search obtained no results. The search is contin­uing

School is open with supports in place for students and staff. We will be communicating directly with parents/caregivers and students. Any further questions should be directed to SD 8 superintendent Mr. Jeff Jones.

The RCMP is urging people to stay out of the area and not to try to search for the missing teacher. They need the scene free of people as to not contaminate possible tracks for search dogs and evidence th­at might help in fin­ding the teacher.

    1. Yes, an update would be good. Any more info after the weekend of searching? I was a sub teacher at Kaslo & Jewett schools in the 1980-1990s era & remember his name even though I didn’t personally know him.
