Police and fire crews worked together to remove the partially wedged sailboat from underneath the dock. Investigators searched the vessel and have been unable to locate anything onboard that would aid them in identifying a proper owner.

The older 24-foot vessel, is described as a white, with red and yellow pin striping and a dark blue hull.

Anyone with any information that may assist police in establishing the rightful owner of the boat is asked to contact Const. Calyton McColl of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
