Officers from Selkirk RCMP, Police Dog Services, Search and Rescue, the Canadian Forces Joint Rescue Coordination Centre, and the East Beaches Fire and Rescue have conducted an intensive search by air, land, and water that has so far been unsuccessful.

The man’s vehicle and trailer were found at the beach early Friday morning.
