Quesnel, BC: When the Quesnel RCMP heard that Carter Abrams didn’t have the opportunity to wear his Halloween costume or Trick-or-Treat due to his being lost for four days and three nights on a remote logging road northeast of Quesnel with his step-father, Glen Brooker, and his dog, LeRoy, the members of the Quesnel RCMP rallied together to ensure Carter had the opportunity to get some treats without any tricks.
After learning Carter and Glen had been located, the first instinct of the RCMP members and rescue staff involved was to ask about their physical and mental wellbeing. When it was learned they were tired from their 40 kilometer walk but were in good physical condition, Quesnel RCMP members went out and purchased several boxes of treats to ensure Carter got to experience Halloween, even if it was four days later, says Sergeant Chris Riddle of the Quesnel RCMP.
Carter, wearing his costume, was able to tour the Quesnel RCMP Detachment where he went from office to office and received several treats and gifts purchased by RCMP staff, police officers and Search and Rescue volunteers. He left with a backpack full of treats and a smile from ear to ear.
Carter’s step-father, Glen, and his mother, Jacquie, were very moved by the gesture and wanted to thank all involved with the search efforts which included Dunkley Lumber for mobilizing their helicopter and locating the pair, 100 Mile House, Williams Lake, Quesnel, Prince George and Vanderhoof Search and Rescue units for assisting Quesnel RCMP members in the search and to all those who volunteered their time and efforts to ensure Carter, Glen and LeRoy were found in a timely manner.
