UPDATED: Ucluelet first responders locate missing senior

87-year-old found safe and sound.

Ucluelet first responders located a missing senior after a roughly two-hour search Thursday afternoon.

Const. Josh Roda of the Ucluelet RCMP told the Westerly News the 87 year-old tourist was walking around Big Beach with two other individuals but had walked ahead towards the resort they were staying at and went missing.

First responders, including Ucluelet’s Volunteer Fire Brigade, West Coast Inland Search and Rescue and the RCMP conducted a roughly two-hour search for the female before locating her sleeping in a different room within the resort.

“We’re very happy to have a great result,” Roda said. “It was a fantastic response by Search and Rescue and the Fire Department. Ucluelet is so blessed to have them because they volunteer their time to come out and do this.”
