Missing Dorset hunters found safe at cabin

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Three missing Cape Dorset hunters were found safe and sound Dec. 11.

Cape Dorset RCMP received a call for assistance from the hamlet Monday to help find three missing men believed to be in the Andrew Gordon Bay area.

The group left Cape Dorset early Saturday and were expected to return that night.

Poor weather caused concern for the wellbeing of the hunters.

Volunteer ground searchers left Cape Dorset to participate in the search. A Twin Otter from Iqaluit was dispatched with spotters and three local hunters familiar with the area joined in the search.

Assistance was requested from the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifax, which dispatched a Hercules.

Police received confirmation from ground searchers Monday afternoon the missing hunters had been found safe at a hunting cabin.
