The local Search and Rescue Team (SAR) did however, continue their training and search efforts in the Gull Creek area. Yesterday, members of SAR located what appeared to be a shirt belonging to SILL near a waterfall site and a pool area that could not be accessed through the summer months due to the terrain and high water level. Since the water level subsided two pool areas were searched by SAR swift water teams.

Due to the decreased water levels at this time of year, members were able to access the area and located a body stated Cst. Lesley Smith, North District Media Relations Officer We can confirm that it is Warren Andrew SILL and our condolences go out to the SILL family and all his friends.
Commode Bear.

Anyone that has lost a child knows that closure is a myth perpetuated by people that think they know something about it . Anyone that uses the word closure in regards to our loss doesn't have a clue and I wish for you and your family that you never find out the truth .
Condolences and gratitude

These are very dedicated people who met their objective with finding Mr Sills. It is also a great blessing for the family to now have closure. Winter is setting in and the window of opportunity for more successfull searching is getting thin making this successfull search even more rewarding for everyone involved. The Terrace area is very fortunate to have this dedicated volunteer team available at a moments notice. My sincere congratulations with your success and my condolences to the family of the found person.
