Peter Hsu found after search of Burke Mountain in Coquitlam

A 67-year-old tourist from Taiwain who failed to return from a hike on Burke Mountain in Coquitlam, B.C. yesterday has been found safely this morning.

Peter Hsu walked off the mountain and into a residential neighbourhood on his own around 8 a.m. PT and was spotted by a member of the public who had heard about the search on social media.

He was reported missing after he failed to return from a 40-minute hike on a logging road yesterday.

His family launched their own unsuccessful search of the area, before contacting Coquitlam Search and Rescue, which immediately launched its own search around 3 a.m. PT.
