PRINCE GEORGE — Crews continue to comb the shore and icy water, but still no sign of two missing snowmobilers.

The pair part of a group that went sledding on the Salmon River Monday afternoon.

Three men went into the water, but only one made it out. RCMP and 14 Search and Rescue members have continued the search.

On Wednesday March 9th members of the Civil Air Search and Rescue flew over the area.

Police urge people to stay off the ice on all waterways as the warmer temperatures are meaning an earlier-than-normal melt.
