VANCOUVER — Members of several British Columbia search and rescue teams are scouring the rugged Cheam mountain range in the eastern Fraser Valley, hoping to spot any sign of a missing hiker.

The 50-year-old has not been seen since Sunday, when he hiked ahead of a group travelling to Baby Munday Peak, southeast of Bridal Falls.

The man’s family has identified him as Gordon Sagoo.

He is described as an experienced outdoorsman who is very familiar with hikes in the area. 

A tweet from Chilliwack Search and Rescue confirms its members began searching Sunday night and are continuing their efforts.

A gofundme page posted by the family also thanks Port Coquitlam, Surrey and Lions Bay search and rescue team members for assisting.
