Hiker found in good condition after going missing in Strathcona Park


A Cumberland man has been found alive and in good condition, five days after he went missing while on a hike in Strathcona Park.

Murray Naswell, 50, went into Strathcona Park on Tuesday and camped at Kwai Lake. On Wednesday, he began an ascent of Mount Albert Edward with another couple, who had also camped at the lake.

The couple went back to their campsite but Naswell did not return by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

Then shortly after 12 p.m. on Monday, authorities announced Naswell had been found in good condition and was being brought back to the command centre at the Mountain Centre at Mount Washington.

RCMP officers with dogs, every search and rescue team on Vancouver Island teams from Pemberton to Chilliwack were asked to join the massive search effort.
