More on that foot

Regarding the foot I talked about in my last post, at SAR training last night it turned out that several team members recalled a search in Sasamat Lake for a missing fisherman… in 1987. We looked into our archives, and came up with the following:

Headline news in 1987: missing fisherman in Sasamat Lake

Also in the archives was the following search report; it does not contain the name of the subject.

The search report from Jan 6th 1987

It’s hard to believe that this was 24 years ago, but according to information I’ve heard through the grapevine the boot was a design that was popular in that time period. The Coroner’s service and RCMP are aware of this search. While team members believe it is likely that this boot belonged to the subject of this search, it’s by no means certain and at this point it is only speculation.
