CACHE CREEK —  The search has been suspended for Cache Creek  fire chief Clayton Cassidy believed to have been swept away by high flood waters in the Interior.

     Ashcroft R-C-M-P say crews have been searching for Cassidy  since he disappeared on May 5th while checking flow levels at a creek as snowmelt and rain caused floods in the region.

     Sergeant Kathleen Thai says searchers have completed exhaustive efforts, scouring several water ways -- including Cache Creek, Bonaparte River and the Thompson River -- with no success.

     She says the water is still high and moving fast, and once the levels go down, searchers will look at other possible recovery efforts.
