On August 6, 2022, at approximately 10:35 pm, Powerview RCMP received a report of an overdue male who had gone out for an ATV ride in the RM of Alexander, near the gravel pits on Highway 11. The 23-year-old male from the RM of East St. Paul was able to send his GPS coordinates to his family before his phone died.

Temperatures were dropping and it was dark outside. The male was not dressed for being out overnight, and he did not have food or water.

Officers from the Powerview RCMP Detachment went by ATV to the male's last known GPS coordinates and found the ATV stuck on a very muddy trail. However, the male was not there. Officers continued to search on ATV in rough terrain.

Police searched throughout the night and located the male early in the morning. He had been walking all night. He had minor injuries.
