Soldier goes missing during run Found

Master Cpl. Richard Curnow
UPDATE: The body of Master Cpl. Richard Curnow  was found in the North Saskatchewan River on Sunday near Redwater, about 65 km northeast of Edmonton.  There is no foul play suspected and has been called accidental.

This story comes from Canada, but I thought everyone would be interested in it.

Military personnel and Edmonton police are searching for a soldier that went missing during a 10 km group run at Hawrelak Park.

The run began around 7:00 a.m. Friday morning, and about an hour into the run one of the men noticed that Master Cpl. Richard Curnow, 25,  was missing.

They began looking for him just before 9:00 a.m., but they were not able to find him.  Military personnel from Edmonton Garrison were brought in and by 10:00 a.m., a full scale search was underway.

“It definitely has his buddies worried.  This is an upstanding individual and this is not in his character.  We don’t have nay indication one way or the other what has happened to this individual.  Everyone is hoping for the best case scenario where we find him safe and sound,” said Cpl. Fraser Logan.

Curnow who joined the military in 2004 is 5’11” tall, 208 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.  Curnow is married and has three children one child.  His black 2008 Mitsubishi Outland that he drives was found parked at Hawrelak Park with his personal items still inside.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 780-423-4567.
