Nakusp RCMP are asking for help locating Steven Schroff who has been missing since Friday

UPDATED: Steven Schroff found safe and sound

Schroff had been camping out of cell phone range, and had vehicle trouble. He was able to fix his truck and make it to Grand Forks.

Steven Schroff is safe and sound. This morning around 8:50 a.m. the RCMP heard from his sister who had been called by Schroff after he had heard an announcement on the radio.

Schroff had been camping out of cell phone range, and had vehicle trouble. He was able to fix his truck and make it to Grand Forks.

The Nakusp resident had left his house at 11 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 13 for a trip down to Spokane, but never showed up. Although he had been due later the same day, the 55-year-old man never crossed the border according to U.S. Border Services. Although his cell phone was pinged as being used in Nelson, attempts to locate him had been unsuccessful.

RCMP remind people to let family or friends of their travel plans just in case something like this occurs.
