Sept 14, 2012 Coquitlam SAR received a request for mutual aid from Ridge Meadows SAR. RMSAR had been out searching through the night for a 26 year old female lost in the area north of Pitt Lake.
Coquitlam SAR responded with members for a ground team, SAR Managers and a swiftwater search team.
As the search progressed through the morning, RCMP Air Services and Talon Helicopters were working together to search the area or deliver SAR teams into the field.
A private pilot, not part of the SAR operation, discovered the subject just north of the point last seen. The private pilot picked up the subject and flew her back to SAR Command set up at Grant Narrows Regional Park, where SAR members, paramedics and family were waiting
