Volunteers search Gold Creek in Golden Ears Park in mid-July for the missing 23 year old woman who drowned in June.

Search to resume for woman who drowned in Golden Ears Park

The search will resume for the body of a woman who drowned in Golden Ears Provincial Park at the end of June.

Volunteers will resume a search for the body of a woman who drowned in Golden Ears Provincial Park at the end of June.

The 23-year-old Surrey resident was on a day trip with visiting family when she slipped off rocks near the Upper Burke Falls on June 25 and plunged several metres into the rushing water below.

Search and rescue teams and RCMP spent three days looking for the her, but were unable to recover her body as their search was hampered by strong currents and high water.

Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue manager Rick Laing said water levels have dropped and crews want to get into the creek before the weather turns.

“We are looking at going back this weekend. We are hoping the water levels will be at their lowest levels right now,” Laing added.

“The weather is going to turn at some point and the rain could come in. So we’re going to make a concerted effort this weekend to see if we can locate her.”
