One month after Mark Clarke was last seen, no trace has been found of the 34-year-old Canning-area man.
Kings RCMP Sgt. Stephen Power said March 1 there is nothing new to report on the case, but the police investigation into Clarke’s disappearance continues.
“I know (Valley) Ground Search and Rescue were doing some training exercises earlier in the area,” Power said.
Search manager Fred Bond confirmed members of the volunteer group have been looking for Mark Clark of their own volition.
Some of the team, he noted, had carefully walked the roads and other paths that Clarke normally travelled.
Valley Search and Rescue see the unofficial search efforts as a training exercise, Bond added.
