File # 2020-311

Clearwater RCMP is requesting the public’s assistance in locating a missing Alberta man.

On March 28, 2020, shortly after 2 p.m. Clearwater RCMP initiated a missing person’s investigation after items they believed to belong to Wayne Theriault were turned into the local detachment. The items were located by individuals hiking in the Helmcken Falls area of Wells Gray Park, with no signs of Mr. Theriault. Investigators believe that Wayne Theriault was last seen on March 24, 2020.

The RCMP has initiated a search of the area, since the discovery of those personal items, and have called upon Clearwater Search and Rescue personnel to assist. There is nothing to indicate foul play at this time, however police are very concerned for Wayne’s health and well-being.
