Police are looking for the operator and passenger of a boat that was run aground near Bear Creek on Saturday night.

West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a boat that had run aground on a sandbar near the shoreline at Bear Creek, Sept. 22 at 10:30 p.m.

“Apparently, the two occupants were uninjured and obtained a ride to the Lake Okanagan Resort from a witness to the incident. The boat was stuck on the sandbar and suffered significant hull damage,” said Const. Kris Clark.

“In another incident at about 6 pm that night, the West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a collision between two boats in the middle of the Okanagan Lake. Apparently the two boats hit broadside with a more serious collision being avoided when one operator swerved at the last second. There is nothing at this time to indicate that these two events are associated.”

Anyone with any information about these two incidents is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880.
