RCMP confirm body find of missing mushroom picker near Terrace
Terrace RCMP have confirmed that the body of Devlin Sabo was located by Terrace Search and Rescue early Wednesday (October 9) approximately six kilometers up Fiddler Creek near the Skeena River.
Our condolences go out to the Sabo family,” said Cst. Angela Rabut, Community Policing/Media Relations officers for the Terrace RCMP.
It was very important that we find Devlin to bring closure to this tragic set of events.
Sabo and Ike Murray had become lost early on the first day of their ordeal. They hunkered down in an area that was not included in the massive search that followed over the next seven days.
After a week the pair made the decision to hike out. Sabo soon lost strength to continue. Murray stayed with Sabo till his death then managed to hike for two more days and finally hit the railroad tracks where he was shortly discovered by CN maintenance workers.
The Coroner and the Terrace Forensic Identification Unit attended the area where Sabo’s body was located. The matter has been turned over to the Coroner.
Sabo and Murray had been missing since September 22, when they failed to return back to their boat at a set time after picking mushrooms in the area of Lorne Creek along the Skeena River.
