    B.C. crew readies for Aussie search assignment
    Missing Canadian: Rescue team offto New South Wales in hopes of locating Ontario man last seen in May

    Search manager of Vancouverbased SAR Technology, Martin Colwell, is headed to New South Wales, Australia on Wednesday, with the rest of his 18-member search and rescue crew - selected from across B.C. - leaving this weekend to help in the search for 25-year-old Brampton man, Prabhdeep Srawn.
    -----
    Colwell and his team have put in "lots of preparation" over the past month. "We have a fairly good body of information that's been provided (by previous search and rescue teams)," he said. "We've had to do a lot of setting up, maps, planning scenarios, tracking equipment, communications, safety, camping gear - basically the logistics of moving a lot of people into quite a remote area."

    East Kootenay searchers help look for missing man in Australia
    Four of those experts hail from the East Kootenay. From Kimberley Search and Rescue, Scott MacLeod and Seb Martinez have volunteered to take part. They will be joined by Tom Hopkins from Fernie Search and Rescue, and Charmaine Lingard from Sparwood Search and Rescue.
    -----
    In teams of three, they will scour a large area searching for Srawn, hoping to complete 60 missions in the two-week expedition.
    MacLeod, who leaves for Australia from Vancouver on Saturday, said he volunteered partly because of the challenge of the new terrain, but mostly because he wants to help the family.
    -----
    A former police officer, MacLeod now works in Victim Services in Cranbrook.

    Family of missing Canadian continues the search
    Prabh’s deeply anguished mother Devinder speaking to Can-India from her Brampton home said, “I won’t be at peace and neither will I rest until we find out what happened to my son, every time the phone rings or someone comes to the door, my heart pounds.”
    -----
    His sister Mandeep who is spearheading the campaign to find her brother says, “It is indescribably painful. We’ve tried to remain faithful and hopeful. If we don’t find him, we’ll always keep searching, it’ll never end. As much as we don’t want this to be the end of Prabh’s life, we need to know, so that it gives us closure. We won’t ever get over it, but at least we’ll learn to cope with it over time. However, without knowing for sure, we’ll be stuck in this rut.”

    Just two weeks before Prabh went missing, he came home (April) for his cousin Rajvir’s wedding for two weeks and left his family and friends with cherished memories, he was to return for good two months later.

    Search for missing bushwalker resumes
    Mr Srawn's cousin Ruby Singh said on Monday the family was realistic about the likely outcome, but was grateful for the resources allocated by authorities.
    "Obviously this has been a very difficult time and it has been very hard on all of us," she said. "We're hoping that they will be able to hopefully find Prabh soon and we can put this behind us.
    "We have been trying our best to look at things from many different angles and talk to experts. We still don't have the concrete answer and we are trying to get that."
    She said a week-long small scale search could be followed by a larger operation.

    "We've put together a team of volunteers and we were hoping to deploy them after the police search was over and resolved but unfortunately the police search had to be delayed so some of it is going to overlap, to begin next week."

    Two members of Nelson Search and Rescue chosen for elite team
    Brian Cooles and Ryan Brown left last week to join a team of 18 BC-based search and rescue members who will be searching from November 30 to December 15.
    Murray Springman, search manager for Nelson Search and Rescue, said the fact the two members of the Nelson crew were selected show the level of talent and expertise the local team has.
    “There was an email sent to every search and rescue volunteer in the province,” explained Springman.
    The email asked them to list all qualifications and experience. From that, the top 18 people were chosen to make up the team.
    The crew is now in New South Wales, Australia looking for any signs of 25-year-old Brampton man Prabhdeep Srawn.

    Police resume Snowy Mountains search for missing Canadian hiker
    Superintendent Rod Smith, from the Monaro Local Area Command, says police officers, the dog squad and a rescue helicopter looking for Mr Srawn again this week.
    He says there is still too much snow to properly search the areas not covered before, and they may have to wait several weeks for it to melt.
    "I know the family have invested a lot of time and money into trying to find their son and family member," he said.
    "We'd like nothing more than to be able to find him and give the family that ease.

    New search for Prabhdeep Srawn, missing hiker from Hamilton, fails
    A new search for Prabhdeep Srawn, the former military reservist from Hamilton who disappeared last May while hiking in Australia, hasn't produced any new clues.
    -----
    The final search team finished its work on Dec. 17 after a gruelling 2-day bush-wack down a major drainage area turned up no clues, Colwell said.
    "We have searched all of the originally-designated high probability areas as well as a number of new areas identified while we were searching," Colwell said in an email to CBC Hamilton.
    "Unfortunately, we still have not found even one verifiable clue."
    -----
    The search team is set to fly back to Canada on Wednesday.

    Locals search for missing Canadian down under
    After searches in Australia found no trace of Srawn, his family asked B.C. Search and Rescue members if they could participate in an independent search. Five East Kootenay Search and Rescue members put up their hands to join the team of 18 volunteers.

    From Kimberley Search and Rescue, Scott MacLeod and Seb Martinez; from Fernie Search and Rescue, Bernie Palmer and Tom Hopkins; and from Sparwood Search and Rescue, Charmaine Lingard all volunteered their time to help Srawn's family find out what happened to the young man.

    They based themselves at Charlotte’s Pass, in staff accommodation for a ski hill.
    From there, working in teams, they put on three separate missions into the alpine. It was an eye-opening experience, said Scott MacLeod.

    “There’s only one season in the mountains and it’s winter, once you get to any kind of height. What we saw was a beautiful summer day, very hot, and then that night, the system comes in, and there is a couple of inches of snow on the tent. The next day we look at it and realize the weather is deteriorating. We came out in a whiteout, navigating with a GPS,” said MacLeod.

    “If Prabh was caught in the same conditions, without a compass or GPS and without the gear we had, he probably realized he was in a whole lot of trouble.”

    “I don’t believe the family is going to call it quits. They might get other volunteers searchers involved, probably from Australia.”

    Search resumes in NSW Snowy Mountains for missing Canadian backpacker
    Superintendant Rod Smith, from the Monaro Local Area Command, says crews have been scouring the Kosciuszko National Park since Christmas.
    “We've had our police and search crews on the ground up there over the last week and that will continue,” he said.
    “Hopefully all those snow drifts will disappear before it gets cold again, which will enable us to really complete the entire area.
    “But at this stage it's just day by day just covering those areas.”

    Family reach out for help to find Prabh Srawn
    The family of missing Canadian bushwalker Prabhdeep Srawn have reached out to the public to help fund their ongoing search efforts, in the hope of finding their son and brother.
    -----
    The search for Mr Srawn is scheduled to begin again in February or March, privately funded by the Srawn family who have already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on the hunt.
    -----
    Ms Srawn said the family was waiting to hear back from emergency services, who had said the search could possibly begin again in three or four weeks.
    -----
    Meanwhile, she said Mr Colwell would be returning with a team of 20 to 30 people later in summer to continue the search and some of the volunteers were becoming emotionally invested in the search.
    -----
    Ms Srawn said this had been the hardest time of their lives for the family.

    Family of missing Indo-Canadian man appeals for funds
    The search has cost the family up to $400,000 dollars, forcing them to sell their car as well as property in India and take out a second mortgage on their house.
    "We spent so much that we thought we'd get an outcome on the second round of searching we funded," Prabhdeep Srawn's sister was quoted as saying.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    Search resumes for missing bushwalker
    "Now that all the snow drifts have completely melted, we will be conducting a further ground search in the week commencing 17 March," Superintendent Smith said.
    -----
    "We are determined to finish this search and we remain hopeful of being able to bring some news to the Srawn family.
    "In saying that, we are also observant of the reality of possibly never finding Mr Srawn. It won't be without our best effort though."
    -----
    "We will be focusing around the Mount Townsend and lakes areas," he said.

    Nearly a year after his disappearance, the family of missing bushwalker Prabhdeep Srawn are not yet ready to give up on finding him aliveSpeaking to the Bulletin from Toronto, Canada yesterday Mr Srawn’s cousin Ruby Singh said the Canadian Army reservist’s family would never stop searching.
    “It’s difficult being out there just waiting for news and not getting anything.
    “You kind of have to put everything on hold and it’s been extremely expensive.”
    -----
    Ms Singh said the family have been told New South Wales police will conduct a final ground search later this month now that the snow has cleared, but insisted the family would continue their private search efforts.

    “I don’t know if the final search effort means they (police) will stop looking after that, that’s just how they worded it,” she said.
    “We have hired a search manager, Martin Colwell, who is trying to pull together an operation, we have more volunteer searchers going out and the family will probably head back as well.
    “The hardest part for us is keeping people interested in helping and finding qualified people who can go into those areas a year later.”

    What happened to Prabhdeep Srawn.
    The missing persons sign that hung for nearly a year in the window of the emergency shelter has been taken down and police have also stopped handing out flyers to bushwalkers and skiers as they enter the national park in the desperate hope than one of them, somewhere, may stumble upon an overlooked clue to one of the biggest mysteries ever played out in the high country.
    -----
    In his upstairs office at the imposing concrete bunker of Queanbeyan Police Station, Superintendent Rod Smith is collating a file on the search for Prabhdeep Srawn. Having spent months poring over the evidence, false leads, and reems of data from the multiple state and federal agencies involved in the search, the file will soon be handed to the NSW Coroner, even though no body or any of Srawn’s possessions have been found beyond the camper.

    Calls for new search for Canadian hiker Prabhdeep Srawn lost in Snowy Mountains
    A Snowy Hydro worker involved in the 2013 search for a hiker missing in Kosciuszko National Park believes authorities may have skimmed over key pieces of evidence that point to a specific area where the man may have gone off course.
    On May 22 last year, two of Mr Mulligan's colleagues were clearing access tracks around the Lady Northcotes Canyon area, when they reported over the radio they had heard a voice calling out from The Sentinel, a steep peak above.
    -----
    "There were so many coincidences that day, we thought for sure he was going to walk out of the scrub any minute and we'd be loading him into the back of the car."
    -----
    "It all points to the face of Sentinel, and if they did it properly - get a heap of people and sweep down that face two meters apart - then you'd be able to know for sure, but I don't think they'll find him unless they take another look at Sentinel," Mr Mulligan said.
