CARLETON GROUND SEARCH & RESCUE INC.
Millville Search 2009
Millville, NB May 11/2009
Our Team was activated by the RCMP shortly before 4:00 AM on Monday, May 11/2009 for a Lost Persons Search in the Millville, NB area.
Three females of the local area ranging in ages from 16 to 78 years went for a walk Sunday evening on nearby woods roads and trails
and did not return when expected.
They were located by RCMP DogMaster Pierre Gardner who was assisting with the search effort at 8:45
AM. There were no apparent injuries from their spending a night in the woods. The group had the benefit of a fire during
the night and primarily suffered wet feet.
We also had invaluable assistance from the Millville Fire Department, Millville
Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, Department of Natural Resources, Ambulance Service and citizens from the area with ATV`s, food
and offering to help in any way they could.
