Scrambling Accidents, 19 July 2008 [cached]
Wet weather and low clouds this week have hampered the search for a hiker who has been missing since Sunday in the area around Brandywine Falls Provincial Park . Crews from Whistler, Pemberton and Coquitlam Search and Rescue (SAR) have turned up no clues in the search for Samuel Black, 39, of Vancouver . Ted Pryce-Jones, secretary for Whistler SAR, said searchers had a brief break in the weather on Wednesday afternoon and were able to get search helicopters in the air.
According to Pryce-Jones, Black is an experienced hiker and recently returned from a backpacking trip in Banff . Black is described as being approximately 6 feet tall with a medium build, brown eyes with glasses.
After an investigating Black's truck, which was parked at the Brandywine Meadows parking lot, Pryce-Jones said it looked as though Black left with a few cans of tuna, water and a granola bar.
Rescuers speculated that Black experienced a broken ankle and has not been able to travel quickly as a result. Pryce-Jones said friends describe Black as the type of hiker who would likely hunker down and wait out bad weather rather than panicking.
Aside from being an avid hiker, Black is an assistant philosophy professor at Simon Fraser University . According to his on-line biography, Black has his Ph.D from Cambridge University in England and has an attachment to philosophy. The last sentence of his bio reads, "I'm a great devotee of several local Asian restaurants, and regularly go walking in the mountains. As of Tuesday, five rescue teams were searching Black's intended path in the Brandywine Mountain , Mettledome Mountain , Mount Fee and Callaghan areas. His truck continues to sit at the Brandywine Meadows trailhead and police are seeking assistance of anyone whom may have encountered Black.
Fortunately for Black, higher alpine areas have not dipped below the freezing mark despite the cool, damp weather.
Any information regarding Black is to be directed to Whistler RCMP.
