A sad update in the search for a dog who went missing last month in Lynn Canyon Park in North Vancouver.

Maya, a nine-year-old Golden Retriever, was playing in the water on May 23 when she got caught in the current and was swept over a waterfall.

Volunteers searched the area for days with no sign.

Search and rescue crews found her body near Twin Falls over the weekend.

“She was a really sweet dog, friendly,” owner Macarena Masedo said. “She was so active, so healthy. She was the queen of our house.”

Masedo said she plans to put up a plaque in the canyon in Maya’s memory.

Firefighters even conducted a high-angle rope descent during the initial search to locate the lost dog.

We understand that, whether it is a loved one, whether it is a child or whether it is a pet, these are people’s family members,” District of North Vancouver Fire assistant chief Jeremy Duncan told Global News at the time.

“If there was any opportunity to have a positive outcome, we’d love to be involved. … That’s what they trained for.”
