Michael Sabo is still missing over two weeks after he and a friend disappeared while mushroom picking near Terrace.

Ike Murray was found by CN Rail workers along some tracks near the community of Cedarvale northeast of Terrace on Monday afternoon and search and rescue personnel are now searching the same area for Sabo, The Vancouver Sun reported.

The Terrace men set out on a boat with Conner Sabo, Michael's brother on Sept. 22. The mushroom pickers agreed to meet Conner in the Lorne Creek area on the north side of the Skeena River, but he left on his own after waiting for several hours and later reported them missing.

An initial search, called one of the biggest in several decades, was called off on Sept. 29 after finding no trace of the men, The Terrace Standard reported.

Global News reported that Murray is in stable condition at Memorial Hills Hospital.

"He had been wandering around in the bush for two weeks, so he was suffering from the effects of that," Terrace RCMP spokesperson Cst. Angela Rabut told the network.

"The weather here has been not the best and it's really tough country."
