It appears the search for Travis Sukkau has been opened to the public. According to the "Find Travis" Facebook page volunteers wanting to join the effort are invited to Pembina Valley Provincial Park to assist in the search. Operations will continue until 4 p.m. today.

Volunteers are asked to wear brightly coloured clothing, go in groups of four, and take water with them. There will be a sign-in/sign-out sheet so organizers can ensure all volunteers are accounted for at the end of the day.

Meanwhile, we are awaiting confirmation on what role the RCMP and other search and rescue teams may be playing in today's efforts.

The 19 year old Winkler resident has been missing since Thursday evening when he did not return from taking photos inside the Park.
