Police say during a search of the man’s home, his all-terrain vehicle was unaccounted for. That prompted calls to RCMP air services and Central Okanagan Search and Rescue to search wooded areas near the missing man’s property.

The search ended at approximately 10 p.m., when search and rescue volunteers found the deceased man.
