      A search has been relaunched for a Vancouver hiker who went missing at a provincial park in Southern B.C. after some of his belongings are believed to have been located.

      Last year, the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) had previously announced on October 13 that 25-year-old Jordan Naterer had been reported missing.

      After leaving his apartment at Seymour and Nelson streets in Vancouver for a hiking trip in Manning Park on October 10, he didn’t show up for a family Thanksgiving gathering on October 12. Manning Park, one of B.C.'s most popular provincial parks, is about a three-hour drive from Vancouver. 

      His black Honda Civic was found at the Frosty Mountain Trailhead near the Lightning Lake day-use area.

      Although an extensive search was conducted from October 13 to November 7, he was not located.

      Princeton RCMP announced today (July 6) that on July 4 of this year, a volunteer searcher found items in a remote, limited-access area that are believed to belong to Naterer.

      Consequently, Princeton Search and Rescue and an RCMP helicopter have launched a search in the area.

      Naterer is described as a white male with fair skin, short brown hair, and a slim build, and who is 178 centimetres (five-feet, 10-inches) tall.

      Anyone with information about Naterer’s whereabouts is asked to contact Princeton RCMP at 250-295-6911.
