PUBLIC NOTICE: Neskie Manuel Found

Dear Family and Friends:


It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Neskie Manuel has been found. Neskie's body was found on the shores of the South Thompson River downstream from Neskonlith Reserve in Secwepemc territory, he passed away from unknown causes. We have lost our beloved son, brother, uncle, cousin, family and community member.

The family would like to thank all the people who helped search for Neskie or contributed to the search. It is heartwarming to see and know how many people deeply care about Neskie and his family. Your ongoing support for the 53 day search will never be forgotten.

This will continue to give us strength in this difficult time. As unfortunate as it maybe our family is pleased to be making funeral arrangements for our once missing family member. This announcements will be made shortly.

It is strange that the confirmation of his identity, given today, June 29 is also his birthday.
