CHILLIWACK — A search for missing Delta hiker Gordon Sagoo has been called off.

Sagoo, 50, was reported missing on August 14 after he failed to meet his hiking group at their designated meeting point after hiking Baby Munday Peak in Chilliwack.

Police officers, a police dog squad, Chilliwack Search and Rescue and two aircraft helped in the search for the Delta man, along with search and rescue teams from Lions Bay, Surrey, Coquitlam, the North Shore and Kent-Harrison.

And on Saturday, an RCMP Remote Piloted Aircraft System and a helicopter equipped with forward looking infrared flew over areas of the mountain that ground crews couldn’t get to.

In a news release, Chilliwack RCMP said the search was called off Monday “after exhausting all initial efforts to locate the missing hiker.”

“A thorough ground and air search of the region has been conducted for the missing hiker,” said RCMP Cpl. Mike Rail. “RCMP remain in close contact with the missing man’s family.”
