UPDATED: Stolen boat in 108 Mile found, returned to owner

Owner contacted by third-party witness on social media.

A boat stolen from 108 Mile Ranch has been returned to its owner.

100 Mile RCMP Staff-Sgt. Svend Nielsen said the owner was contacted by a third-party witness through social media. The witness had seen a boat matching the description while walking near the 108 Mile Ranch Heritage site. The owner identified the boat based on specific markings – for example, some of the damage contained part of the owner’s fingerprint imprinted on the repaired spot along the outside edge of the boat.

The owner is extremely grateful for the public’s assistance.
