Provincial police are appealing to snowmobilers to operate their vehicles safely after a man and his daughter were run off a trail in Elliot Lake last Sunday.

They say the pair were riding on a trail when an approaching snowmobile met them at a high speed on the wrong side of the trail, forcing them into the ditch.

There were no injuries and police say the suspect snowmobile did not stop.

They say they're looking for the driver of a newer model black and orange Ski Doo Rev.
