Search for missing 26-year-old woman in Golden area halted

The search will resume when conditions improve

The Golden-Field RCMP is continuing to investigate a missing employee from Beaverfoot Lodge, despite the search for the 26-year-old woman being called off.

RCMP was made aware of the missing person late in the evening of July 1.

Evidence suggests she may have entered the Beaverfoot River, which feeds into the fast-flowing and currently high Kicking Horse River.

The lodge is located east of Golden close to Field.

Police Dog Services (PDS) and Search and Rescue teams attempted to locate her the following day, but it was determined the search for the woman would be suspended despite her not being located.

According to Golden-Field RCMP Corp. Mike Wilson land and search efforts have been exhausted, and the current conditions of continued high streamflow are too dangerous for continued search efforts in the water.

He stated the RCMP will revisit and continue to search when water levels recede.

The missing woman’s family has requested that her identity remain anonymous.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of this person, please contact the Golden-Field RCMP at 250-344-2221 and cite file 2022-1595.
