After a detailed review of a missing person file by the RCMP and Kitimat Search and Rescue, a strategic search plan identifying eight possible search areas was developed. A systematic search plan was executed on the morning of Saturday October 7 where 22 members of KSAR were mobilized to search various high priority areas.
At 10:30 a.m. human remains were located in a wooded area not far from an urban part of the Kildala neighborhood by one of the Kitimat Search and Rescue Teams. The remains are believed to be Patric Graham from Kitimat who was reported missing on September 7. Foul play is not suspected. The B.C. Coroners Service has taken over the investigation.
