Search Suspended for Wyoming Cowboy Missing in Canada
After seven days of a large-scale effort, Canadian authorities have suspended the search for a missing Wyoming man.
The search for 32-year-old Ben Tyner was suspended due to extreme cold and poor weather conditions. Tyner was last seen Jan. 26 at Nicola Ranch in southern British Columbia, where he has worked as ranch manager since November.
In the week since his horse was found Jan. 28, the area was searched extensively by more than 19 teams from across British Columbia. The effort included dog tracking teams, air support, drones, horseback riders and community volunteers.
Although the search has been suspended, his whereabouts remain under investigation, according to a statement from the Merritt detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The search could be reinstated should further information warrant such action.
Anyone who has information on Tyner's whereabouts, or anyone who saw him over the weekend of Jan. 27, is asked to contact the Merritt RCMP detachment.
