They say the extensive search on land and water has stopped, but they urged the public to remain watchful of him.

Schreiber of Lardeau, B.C., is described as 58 years old, white, six feet two inches tall with brown hair and hazel eyes.

He was last seen by family on Tuesday and a search was launched when his pickup truck was found parked at the boat launch with no canoe.

Search and rescue personnel found an unoccupied canoe believed to be Schreiber's in the water on the northeast side of the lake.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 20, 2020.
