Kinbasket reservoir


Revelstoke RCMP say the search for two missing boaters who disappeared in the Kinbasket reservoir is now a recovery mission.

The men were last seen fishing on Monday night.

Police and Search and Rescue teams have searched the area by air and by boat.

Employees with BC Hydro and Western Pacific have also helped scour more than 150 square kilometres around the lake.

A private company that uses a side scan sonar and remote operation vehicle is being brought in to help with the recovery.

The men have been identified as 60-year-old Allen Healy from Osoyoos and 55-year-old Mike Murphy from Mission.
