-from the Mayhue family
At this time Search and Rescue has suspended its extensive land, air and sea search for Jonah. Jonah used his surfboard to cross the Gordon River at low tide to the West Coast Trail side.
He was last seen watching two Gray whales rubbing on the rocks at the river’s entrance. An hour later Jonah’s surfboard was found on Pacheedaht beach but there was no sign of him.
After a comprehensive five day search Jonah has not been located. The huge effort put forth by the Search and Rescue teams, Parks Canada, the RCMP, family, friends, and citizens of Pacheedaht and Port Renfrew provides us with much needed solace.
We deeply thank everyone involved in the Search for their unrelenting dedication to finding our Jonah.
We will continue to search for Jonah. Anyone with information that could help us is asked to contact Sooke RCMP at 250-642-5241.
We request privacy at this time but look forward to sharing everyone’s memories of our son and brother.
