Sharp is believed to have died in the Robinson Creek Mud slide which flowed over his property and destroyed his residence, however, efforts to locate his remains have been unsuccessful.
The Salmon Arm RCMP with the support of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, Ministry of Transport
and local contractors Blackburn Excavation continue work in the Robinson Creek slide area.
