Hunters missing after failing to show up at cabin

Raymond Selinger and Reid Bacon left Abbotsford Monday to go hunting in the Kamloops area, but never arrived at destination.

Two hunters from the Abbotsford area have been reported missing after failing to show up at their destination earlier this week.

Abbotsford Police say Raymond Selinger, 67, and Reid Bacon, 65, left Abbotsford on Monday to meet up with a third man at a remote cabin in the Kamlooops area, where they planned to hunt.

But the two men were reported missing Thursday after family and the third friend confirmed the pair had not arrived at their destination. The two men – who were travelling in separate vehicles – had no planned stops, police say.

Selinger stands 6′ 1″ and weights 210 pounds. He was driving a black, 2008 Dodge Ram pickup with a white camper (plate – CL 7454). Selinger has grey hair, a moustache and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a red plaid jacket, blue jeans, suspenders and hiking shoes.

Reid stands 5’11” and weighs 245 pounds. He was driving a blue 2002 Suzuki Vitra sedan (plate – 564 LFG). He has white hair, a beard and dichromatic eyes (meaning they have different colours). He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans and boots with no laces.

In a Facebook comment, one man reported seeing and talking with the pair exploring a forest service road in the Merritt area, but police have told a hunter’s family the sighting may not have been of the pair.

Anyone with information about the men should contact police at 604-859-5225, or text 222973 (abbypd).
