RCMP, Search and Rescue teams look for David Kim between Prince Rupert and Terrace

Search and Rescue teams from Prince Rupert and Terrace are searching for David Sung Duk Kim, who was last seen leaving Shames Mountain parking lot at approximately 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 7.

Kim is a 45-year-old Terrace resident. He was driving a light blue 2007 Toyota Yaris, which was found parked, and locked, at near Khyex River off Highway 16 on April 8, at 12 p.m.

“We came here at 3 p.m. and did a shoreline search with personnel, search from a boat and helicopter between Terrace and Prince Rupert. We had 17 members attending the search. We haven’t found anything out,” said Alexander Hruby, search manager from Terrace, at 6:45 p.m. on Sunday, April 8.

Members of the Terrace Search and Rescue team searched for Kim on the road last night between Shames Mountain ski hill and Terrace.

“It was not until today we found the vehicle abandoned,” Hruby said.

Search and Rescue teams were ending their search for the day at around 7 p.m. and Hruby said they may do a sonar search for Kim tomorrow.

If anyone has information or knows where Kim is, please contact the Terrace RCMP at 250-638-7429 or Crime stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
