Search continues for Neskonlith Indian Band councillor

Chase RCMP are hoping a tip from the public will help them track down a missing Neskonlith Indian Band councillor who disappeared while camping last weekend.

Neskie Arrow Manuel was last seen in the early-morning hours of Sunday, May 8, while on a family camping trip on the west end of Neskonlith Lake near Chase.

Manuel was still missing as of KTW press deadline on Thursday, May 12.

Family members told investigators the 30-year-old walked away from the campsite at about 1 a.m., leaving his cellphone and other personal items behind.

Air and ground search efforts by police, Shuswap Search and Rescue and Kamloops Search and Rescue have yet to turn up any sign of Manuel, who is a former member of the United States Navy.

According to family members, Manuel recently suffered a “traumatic experience” and had become disoriented.

He is described as a native male, standing about six feet tall and weighing between 180 and 190 pounds.

He has short black hair and brown eyes.

When he was last seen, Manuel was wearing a grey sweater, blue jeans and dark running shoes with an orange Nike logo on the side.

He also wears glasses, but family members aren’t sure whether he has them with him.

Anyone with information about Manuel’s whereabouts is asked to contact Chase Mounties at 250-679-3221 or Beverly Manuel at 250-679-2821.
