Social media in Sooke was abuzz on Monday afternoon, on Victoria Day Monday, mostly because of unusual helicopter activity in the skies. Some people on social media witnessed the helicopter in various areas around Sooke.
Sooke PocketNews received confirmation from a relative of one of the two campers missing since Sunday, that they were safely found on Monday afternoon.
Social media user B. Jordison kindly submitted the following video, showing an RCMP helicopter taking off from the baseball diamonds near Journey Middle School.
EDITED at 7:20 p.m., the previous version of this said the video was from the baseball/soccer fields along Sooke River Road. That was incorrect. The video is actually from the baseball diamonds near Journey Middle School.
