On Friday, the New Hazelton RCMP and BC Search and Rescue had still found no sign of Warren Andrew Sill, a 26-year-old filmmaker from Ohio.

“The Unified Command Team, comprised of the the New Hazelton RCMP, BC SAR with the support from the ND RCMP Air Services and RCMP Police Dog Services are suspending the current search effort,” New Hazelton RCMP Sargent Jeff Pelley said in a press release.

“Further search efforts will be considered should further information be received that may assist in identifying other possible search areas.”

Sill told family he was going into the woods for a few days on July 4th.

Police grew concerned on July 10 when a search of his vehicle produced all the equipment needed for camping.

Sill’s sleeping bag, tent and camping stove still remained in the vehicle, all of which were necessary to survive in the rugged mountain terrain RCMP said.

Furthermore, police learned Sill was not a seasoned outdoors man.

Anyone that has any information or has seen Sill who is described as 5’10, approximately 180 lbs medium build with short dirty blond hari is asked to contact the New Hazelton RCMP detachment at 250-842-5244 as the investigation will remain ongoing.
