Teen camper found safe

A teen who went missing overnight west of Rocky Mountain House has been found safe.

RCMP said he was located Wednesday via helicopter near the Saunders Recreation Area, about 60 km west of Rocky.

The 15-year-old teen was on a group camping trip when he left his site. The group, from Maskwacis, was on a canoe trip and stopped to camp at the Saunders area.

Police were notified at about 11:50 p.m. on Tuesday that he had left the camping area and not returned.

Rocky RCMP said the youth went to his tent and when supervisors checked on him they discovered he had packed his things and left.

A Calgary Police Service helicopter assisted the evening search on Tuesday.

Search and Rescue, RCMP police dog services and an RCMP jet boat were involved in the search.
