The search for Anita Thorne, 49, has been suspended.
After four days of searching, the RCMP, in conjunction with Prince George Search and Rescue, halted the ground search operations Sunday. Thorne has been missing since Wednesday. Her car was found Thursday at the Willow River rest area, which prompted a large air and ground search, which included the RCMP do team members of Mackenzie Search and Rescue, Nechako Valley Search and Rescue, Quesnel Search and Rescue as well as the Prince George Search and Rescue crew. Civil Air Search and Rescue Association and Pacific Western Helicopters were also involved in the search efforts.
The RCMP’s investigation will continue and should there be a reason for Prince George Search and Rescue’s continued involvement it will assist. Anybody who has any information that might lead to finding Anita Thorne please contact the RCMP at 250-561-3300.
