Tracy De Montezuma, Lake Country Hunter, Found Dead In Aberdeen Plateau

VERNON, B.C. - The search for a hunter southeast of Vernon, B.C., has come to a sad end.

The body of Tracy De Montezuma was found Thursday afternoon in a densely forested area of the Aberdeen Plateau, not far from where his truck was spotted Sunday on a remote logging road.

Officials have not said how he died.

The 52-year-old Lake Country man had gone on a solo, day-long hunting trip last Saturday.

A search began the next day when he was reported overdue.

The five day effort involved up to 11 teams from all over the southern Interior as well as RCMP dog units, a police helicopter and specialized tracking teams. (CKIZ)
