One week after his disappearance, the search for a missing Hudson’s Hope man will focus on an area of dense forest.
Rene Cote was last seen Aug. 6 at around 6:30 p.m. and his truck was later found near power lines by the 400 Road. Hudson’s Hope RCMP says the 42 year-old had a bad day before he went missing.

Cote is described as Caucasian, 5’5" tall and weighs around 140 lbs. He has brown hair and hazel eyes. He also has a moustache and graying stubble.
