In the early morning hours of May 8, 2011, Neskie Manuel walked away from a family camping trip at a campsite in the west end of Neskonlith Lake near Chase, BC. He left behind his personal belongings including his cell phone and has not been seen or heard from since.
Family and friends searched the camp area before contacting Chase RCMP Detachment in the evening of Neski’s disappearance. On May 9th, Chase RCMP supported by Kamloops Air Services conducted an air search, while Kamloops Ground Search and Rescue commenced their efforts with help from over 100 community volunteers.
Neskie is described as:
– Native male
– 6’0" tall
– 180 pounds
– Brown eyes
– Short black hair
At the time of his disappearance, Neskie was wearing glasses, blue jeans, grey sweater, and dark Nike running shoes which may have an orange Nike “swoosh” on the sides. Attached is a photo taken of Neskie that weekend, with the clothes he was last seen wearing.
