11/15/2010

The body of a Prince Rupert man who'd been missing for over a month, has been recovered from the Skeena River.

Members of the Prince Rupert Marine Section located the body of 57-year-old Patrick Lyle Boulton Friday afternoon, about a kilometer from where his car was discovered in the river.

Boulton was reported missing on October 10th, four days after he'd last been seen in Prince Rupert. He'd told a friend at the time he was driving to Kelowna and had expected to be back a few days later.

His partially submerged Honda Civic was spotted in the river last Thursday during low tide.
