Missing Person (Nelson)


Nelson RCMP File 2015-2766


Nelson RCMP are happy to report that Joe Moyer has been located.  At approximately 2020 hours June 16th, Nelson Search and Rescue called advising that MOYER had been located and SAR and family who had also been searching, were with him.  The location of where MOYER was found was described as west of Copper Mountain Forrest Service Road in Blewett.    MOYER’s dog was also found with him.

This area was focused on by Nelson SAR after the RCMP helicopter was called in to complete a second air search earlier in the day.  It was believed a sighting was made by Air Services so a decision was made to send in a ground search to follow up.  This lead was a result of friends finding a foot print in the 49 Creek area by the creek the previous night.

It was reported that MOYER had multiple cuts and scratches when he was found but was not suffering any  other injuries.  EHS attended the scene and helped transport MOYER out with SAR and he was taken to hospital.

The Nelson RCMP would like to thank all the people who worked tirelessly over  the past few days assisting with this search.  “The dedication of Nelson Search and Rescue, friends, and especially the family in working cooperatively to bring this to a successful conclusion was amazing!”-  Cpl. Stefani.  “As well our local media cannot be left out.  The speed and accuracy in getting our information out to the public speaks volumes to the  professionalism of our local outlets in supporting this community and they should be commended.”

Original story:

150614_Joe-MoyerOn 2015-06-13 at 0500 hours Joe Moyer, age 42, walked away from his family home in the 4000 block of Blewett Rd, near Nelson BC.  Moyer was alone and in the company of his back lab dog and was believed to be heading west towards the Kootenay Canal.  Moyer is described as 185 cm (6’1) 104 kg (230lbs), with long, grey curly hair, unshaven, wearing grey pants, a black winter type jacket and not wearing any shoes.   The family became concerned when he had not returned later in the morning and called police for assistance just before noon.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance as there are believed to be some mental health issues that require medical attention.  If you see, or have seen this individual please call 911.  Please do not approach this person as it is reported his dog can be defensive on behalf of the owner.

Nelson RCMP and Nelson Search and Rescue conducted a ground search of the area around MOYER’s residence on Blewett Road and the Kootenay Canal/Rover Creek area last evening.  To date no signs of MOYER have been located.  Friends and family advised they will be conducting their own searches this morning, with Nelson Search and Rescue regrouping this afternoon.  Family is very concerned as MOYER has not been eating regularly and his condition when last seen was described as weak.
