UPDATED - Terrace SAR confirm Engholm found in vehicle
After being informed of a missing person and vehicle traveling between Kitwanga and Terrace, Terrace RCMP advised us, the Terrace Search and Rescue began driving the shoulder of the highway looking for evidence of tracks leaving the road.
Just a few kilometers towards the Gossen Subdivision east of Terrace they discovered tracks entering the ditch on the south side of the highway and scrapes on branches and shrubs.
In a most unfortunate scenario, this location and the direction of travel, west bound, the vehicle entered a deep pool of water and became completely submerged.
RCMP at the scene advised they will be bringing in a three man dive team to recover the vehicle and inspect for occupant(s) . This isn't expected to take place until late this afternoon or early tomorrow morning as members need to be brought in from other detachments.
Very sad news

Aage was a lovely man; a kind and gentle businessman as well as a contributing citizen of Kitwanga.
Such a hard week for this family. My condolences.
