Court, 70, told his family he was going flyfishing on Friday. He was last seen on Thursday.

On Saturday, a motorist found a truck belonging to Court parked at a campground on Cowichan Lake, west of Youbou.

After determining Court hadn’t returned home from his fishing trip, police called in search-and-rescue crews.

Rain plagued Saturday’s search, but crews returned at daybreak on Sunday, scouring the shores and surface of Cowichan Lake.
