NEWS RELEASE · 1st August 2012
RCMP North District
The RCMP has been requested by the family of missing person Warren Andrew SILL to convey a message of gratitude and appreciation to all that have participated in the search for Warren SILL, missing in the New Hazelton BC area since July 4th.
Note of Appreciation from Warren’s, parents Herb and Carla and sister Maureen
No words can express our gratitude for the tireless effort of the RCMP, volunteers, pilots, dogs and dog trainers, organizers, swift water team, Search and Rescue Team, (SAR) and all others that attempted to find Warren Sill. This complex operation was carefully coordinated. Each day, the search was carried out and adjusted accordingly to maximize the possibility of locating Warren. It was truly touching.
Warren obtained a bachelors degree in computer science, and worked at a computer help desk for 3 years. Still, he was not satisfied in his occupation. Warren was passionate about wildlife, especially the elusive Kermode bear. He studied and prepared for several months to learn survival skills, and devoured countless books on animal behavior. Fear did not stand in the way of his dream. Though he was a very young man, we are comforted by the fact that he experienced the richness of the wilderness of Canada while pursuing his goals.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Warren and are very humbled by the caring, compassionate people we have met in Canada. We can never repay our debt to the men and women who searched so tirelessly for him. Yet, we plan on spending our lives paying it forward.
Thank you all so much.
With sincere thanks, Herb, Carla and Maureen
