Hunters find Penticton man's remains
The remains of Albert Chretien have been found.
They were discovered by hunters in Merrit Mountain in Northern Elko County in Nevada.
Chretien and his wife Rita became stranded in Northern Elko Country in March last year, while travelling from Penticton to Las Vegas.
Rita was rescued after spending 48 days in their vehicle but Albert went off in search of help to get their vehicle unstuck and went missing.
MariAnne McKown is the Editor of the Elko Daily Free Press. Her paper has been covering this story and she talked with Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
