  • Numerous emergency personnel and vehicles have swarmed the parking lot at Shannon Falls Provincial Park

After looking for the missing party for about a day, members of a search and rescue team found and recovered the bodies of Megan Scraper, Charles "Ryker" Gamble, and Alexey Lyakh in one of the pooled-up sections of water associated with Shannon Falls near a popular hiking spot outside of Squamish on the Sea-to-Sky Highway.

The swimmers' bodies were located this morning in one of the pools at Shannon Falls.

Around noon yesterday, the trio fell about 30 metres into a pool below.

Heavy water flow and an extremely hard terrain were a challenge for the crew involved in the efforts.

Crews from Squamish Search and Rescue, North Shore Rescue, Lions Bay Rescue, BC Ambulance, Squamish Fire, TEAAM, BC Parks, and Squamish RCMP have been involved in the search.

This is a developing story.

"Her boyfriend and then another friend attempted to save her", Willcox said, adding friends of the victims reported seeing them carried over the lip of one pool and into a second.

Until the operation is complete, Shannon Falls and any trails leading to the pool system are closed to the public.

Banks says the families of those missing are being contacted and the RCMP will not be releasing their names at this time. The incident happened at Shannon Falls, the third-highest waterfall in the province.

RCMP called in a swift water rescue team and an underwater recovery team, the RCMP said.

Federal police in Canada say search and rescue teams in British Columbia have recovered the bodies.

The hikers' identities haven't been released, but police confirmed they were all in their 20s or early 30s, and they were all B.C. residents.

They end up by the attractive granite that's been carved by the water over hundreds of years but the buildup of lichen makes the area slick, Willcox says, adding dogs and people have slipped into the water but have been helped out.

Willcox said the area near Squamish has become increasingly popular with the addition of a gondola that is drawing a lot of locals and tourists who often hike into risky terrain without knowing what's involved.

"Unless you have the knowledge of that area, the expertise and the right equipment you should not be up there", Banks said.
