UPDATE: The boy has been found safe. Coaldale RCMP say he’s being taken to the hospital as a precaution after a lengthy exposure to the elements, but he’s otherwise unharmed.


PICTURE BUTTE, AB – An extensive search is underway to find a five-year old boy who went missing near the Oldman River, just south of Picture Butte.

Coaldale RCMP say the boy was camping in the area with his family when he wandered away to play by the river.

Emergency crews responded just before 2:00 p.m. on Saturday (Apr. 10), along Highway 843. RCMP, Picture Butte Fire Department and Lethbridge Search and Rescue resources have been actively searching since then.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
