Rocky Mountain House RCMP Search for Missing Hiker

The Rocky Mountain House RCMP are currently searching for a missing hiker who was last seen Saturday morning.

At 11am on December 12th, 45 year old Keith Morris told his parents that he was going for a hike or a cross country ski west of Nordegg and that he would return by 3pm. Keith did not return and has not been heard from since his departure. Morris and his family are not from the area and were staying at a cabin in Nordegg.

Morris was last seen leaving the cabin in a silver 2007 Toyota Corolla with an Alberta licence plate of BYW161. He was wearing winter clothing including a black puffy jacket and a black and grey toque. He is described as caucasian, 5’10” tall, slender build with brown hair.

A coordinated search between Rocky Mountain House RCMP, neighbouring RCMP detachments and Search and Rescue is underway.

Given the extreme cold temperatures last night and today the RCMP is very concerned about Keith Morris’s wellbeing. If you have any information that could assist the RCMP in locating Morris please contact the Rocky Mountain RCMP at 403-845-2881.

Fire investigators can't pin cause of fire at Edmonton-area seniors complex

Published on

ST. ALBERT, Alta. — Fire investigators say they have been unable to figure out what caused a fire at an Edmonton-area retirement and long-term care complex last week.

Residents were forced to leave when the fire at the Citadel Mews West Continuing Care Facility in St. Albert broke out on May 6.

It destroyed part of the complex and three residents suffered smoke inhalation.

Investigators say the fire started on a ground-floor patio.

They say it spread from patio furniture to the underside of the deck above and from there up the siding into the building’s attic.

A damage estimate has yet to be made and investigators are still trying to determine what caused the blaze.

“This was a large and devastating fire where thankfully no one was seriously hurt,” St. Albert acting fire Chief Scott Wilde said Friday in a news release.

“If you live in a multi-family building, be aware of your building’s fire safety plan and practise your escape.”

CALGARY — Alberta Health Services says it has obtained a restraining order against a Calgary mayoral candidate who the agency says has threatened health workers.

AHS says Kevin Johnston must stay at least 100 metres away from health officers and must not publish any threats or hate speech directed at them.

Johnston is running in this fall’s municipal election and has been a vocal supporter of anti-lockdown protests.

He appears regularly online where he promotes far-right ideology.

AHS says Johnston has been aggressive and threatening towards two particular health workers as well as to the general AHS workforce.

The agency says it wants to protect staff and ensure they feel supported.
