AFTER AT least one night on Shames Mountain, a Prince Rupert man was found.

Terrace RCMP report that a 20-year-old Prince Rupert man is safe in hospital after being rescued on Shames Mountain Wednesday afternoon.

Around noon, someone called police to report a male, who appeared to be confused, walking along Shames Mountain Road half dressed and without any shoes before disappearing into the forest, said police.

The RCMP police dog unit and Terrace Ground Search and Rescue began searching and a helicopter was sent out to the area, said police.

Shortly before 4 p.m., police dog Toma and his handler Cpl. Rob Budvarson found the man, who has a history of mental illness, and he was taken to hospital for treatment of minor injuries, said police.
