A Kimberley man missing since he left High River, Alberta, en route back to Kimberley has been located.

High River RCMP issued a press release thanking the public for their assistance, and noting that Ernest Davis had been found and was being transported to hospital.

“As a result from a tip, called in by an area rancher, the Crowsnest Pass Search and Rescue sent out snowmobiles and located Mr Davis,” the release said. “His vehicle had left the road on Highway 40 or what is also know as the Forestry Trunk Road, north of Blairmore, Alberta.

“At this time (3:24 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 10) he is being transported to the hospital for an examination.”

Kimberley RCMP and their partners in High River, Alberta had continued with a comprehensive search for a missing man Tuesday.

On February 9, 2015 the High River RCMP were made aware of a missing 67 year old male from Kimberley. Ernest Davis left a residence in High River at approximately 2 p.m. on February 8 to travel back to his residence in Kimberley.

Davis, believed to be be travelling through Crowsnest Pass, had not been heard of since departure from High River.

Kimberley RCMP Cpl. Chris Newel said Tuesday morning, prior to Davis’ being located,  that the search had been ramped up.

“The call did go into High River first but the family resides here in Kimberley,” Newel said. “It’s always better that the family have a contact here that they can talk to in person, so we are taking a more active role.”

The vehicles plates had been entered into police computers so if it is checked anywhere in Canada it would be flagged, Newel said. All hospitals had been contacted as well, with no results.

Newel also said he was getting an EMBC Civil Air Search and Rescue aircraft flying on Tuesday morning.

The aircraft was to search BC  highways as far as the Alberta border,” he said.
