RCMP provide update on Jonathan Knight disappearance

Tuesday afternoon the RCMP provided an update into the extensive search conducted over the last five days into the disappearance of Prince Rupert resident Jonathan Knight.

As we outlined on the blog on May 15th, Mr. Knight first was reported missing on May 8th, at which time an investigation to locate him moved forward, starting with an extensive search of wide areas of the Skeena and Ecstall Rivers.

After days of repeated searches utilizing such resources as the RCMP Marine and Air Service Units, Terrace Ground Search and Rescue, Department of Fisheries and Oceans as well as Canadian Marine Search and Rescue 64 no trace of Mr. Knight has been

With that search having come up with few leads as to his whereabouts, officials are suggesting that Mr. Knight may have chosen to live in the wilderness and may not wish to be located.

With that in mind, the RCMP is asking that if anyone should encounter Mr. Knight on the river or on the trails off of the Skeena or Ecstall Rivers, or in the community, that they contact the RCMP so they can ensure to his safety and provide notification to his family as to his status.

The RCMP outlined background to the updated case file with this information release.
