Police are continuing to search for a missing German hiker west of Fort Nelson.

The man was dropped off in the Tuchodi Lakes area August 1st to begin a 40 day hike spanning approximately 250 kilometres. He had arranged for a pilot to pick him up September 10th at Frog Lake.

Unfortunately, high winds kept the pilot away from the pick-up site until September 12th, and when the pilot arrived, he was unable to find the hiker. RCMP Air Services, Search & Rescue and The Provincial Emergency Program are currently searching for Raster by air, boat and ground. Police describe Raster as an experienced backcountry hiker with experience in solo long distance hiking. Photo: Missing hiker Michael Raster

If you have any information about Raster’s whereabouts, you can contact the Fort Nelson RCMP at 250-774-2700.
