The RCMP is seeking the public's assistance in locating Riley Glenn, a 25-year-old Pemberton male who went missing in the early hours of Christmas Day.

According to the police, he was last seen on the couch at a house he was staying around midnight and was noticed missing at roughly 2 a.m. His father called the RCMP on Dec. 26 at roughly 11:30 a.m., concerned for his safety and the fact he might harm himself.

He was last seen wearing yellow snowpants, an orange vest or a red Camp of Champions jacket. He was possibly carrying a black backpack.

Glenn is from Pemberton, but had been living with friends on the 7400 block of Cottonwood for roughly four months.

Man arrested for assault, possible hit and run

The RCMP is investigating a domestic assault that occurred at roughly 10:20 p.m. on Dec. 26. They received the report from the corner of Northlands and Village Gate, regarding a male who assaulted a female who was lying on the ground. The RCMP attended and found the woman and witnesses, who said the male fled in a dark green SUV, turning northbound onto Highway 99. The RCMP started a search. Police then received a report of a hit and run on Lorimer involving a car matching the description of the one associated with the assault. It was seen driving down the Valley Trail along Lorimer before turning into the Whistler Health Care Centre parking lot. The RCMP attended and found footprints, which they followed to Whistler Olympic Plaza, where they found a male shouting at patrons outside a coffee shop.

The RCMP stopped the man who had blood on his face and hands, and was the registered owner of the vehicle. A 26-year-old male from Vancouver is now facing charges for assault, and may be facing additional motor vehicle charges as well based on witness statements. He also received a 24-hour driving prohibition driving intoxicated, and could face charges as well for impaired driving. Damage from the hit and run was minor.

Snowmobiler retrieved after crash

At 12:30 p.m. on Dec. 21, the RCMP received a call regarding a male who was injured in a snowmobile accident on the Pemberton Ice Cap. Search and Rescue attended and brought the male back to Pemberton, where he was taken to the clinic with injuries to his back.

According to police, the 30-year-old Pemberton male was experienced on his sled and was touring with friends when he hit a bump and was launched forward. His sled then ran him over.
