Police suspend search for missing Bay Roberts man
Search for Joshua Wall called off unless there's new info or 'considerable snowmelt,' say police
Police have suspended the search for a Roaches Line, N.L., man who went missing during Friday's blizzard.
Bay Roberts RCMP worked with search and rescue personnel, police dogs, and drones Tuesday to look for Joshua Wall, 26, who left his family home Friday to walk to a friend's home.
While the official search for Joshua Wall is suspended, the Wall family and friends will carry on looking for Joshua.
On Thursday the family is hoping to enlist the help of volunteers, beginning at 9 a.m. at 365 Main Roaches Line.
Wayne Wall, Joshua's father, told CBC News he's very grateful for all the support.
"Despite exhaustive efforts today and over the last four days, Joshua has not been located. Search efforts have now been paused," said a statement from an RCMP spokesperson Tuesday evening.
The spokesperson later clarified that "paused" means the search is "called off for now, unless we get new info or we have considerable snowmelt."
