Body of Quebec man, missing for 2 weeks in California, found by a family member

  Body of Quebec man, missing for 2 weeks in California, found by a family member Félix Desautels-Poirier, 25, had been missing for two weeks in northern California. His body was found in a marsh in a city park by a member of his family. The man's father had arrived in California last week. U.S. authorities say they are awaiting a coroner's report to determine the cause of death, but for now, there are no signs of criminal activity. Desautels-Poirier had travelled with friends to California and was last seen with friends in Arcata, about 500 kilometres north of San Francisco.

Friends and family have identified the two people onboard a missing plane in B.C. as Dominic Neron of Spruce Grove and his girlfriend, Ashley Bourgeault. Moores confirmed the plane was en route to Edmonton .

Authorities remain confounded by the mysterious disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet with 239 people on board, as Ten nations are involved in looking for the missing plane in one of the most extensive searches ever seen, and aircraft-maker Boeing has joined the US search team.

Family and friends have identified a man and woman said to be onboard a plane that disappeared Saturday en route to Edmonton from Penticton, B.C.

Tammy Neron identified the missing couple as her brother, Dominic Neron, and his girlfriend, Ashley Bourgeault, a mother of three, in an impassioned Facebook post hoping that searchers would find them alive.

Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre spokeswoman Lt. Melissa Kia said three helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft were focusing their search in an area around 45 km northeast of Revelstoke, B.C., where a radar satellite signal and a cellphone signal were last picked up.

 Monday’s search was to expand to the area of Rogers Pass, Kia said. The search was scaled back as night fell Monday.

A ground search has been made impossible because of low clouds and rain over the mountainous terrain, as well as a lack of information as to where the plane could be.

Family of missing pilot takes on search in B.C. mountains as military suspends effort .
The sister of a missing Alberta pilot whose plane vanished without a trace in southeast B.C. said she feels abandoned by the military which suspended its search Monday. Tammy Neron believes her brother, Dominic Neron, and his girlfriend, Ashley Bourgeault, are still alive 10 days after the single-engine aircraft went down somewhere over Rogers Pass. The family was desperate to extend the official search, but "protocol" took precedence, she said Tuesday. "We've been fighting really hard and it's devastating to know that search-and-rescue is done their search now," she said.
