The search for Thomas Hines was suspended for the weekend.

However, it is expected to resume early this week, when divers from RCMP Underwater Recovery Team return with specialized equipment to assist in the search.

Hines, who was reported missing last Tuesday, failed to return home after a canoe tip on Waugh Lake.

Sunshine Coast RCMP in partnership Search and Rescue from both Squamish and the Sunshine Coast, RCMP Air Services and the Underwater Recovery Team conducted an extensive land, water and air search since Hines was reported missing but were unable to find him.

Anyone with information relating to Thomas Hines’ disappearance is asked to call the Sunshine Coast RCMP at 604-885-2266.
