The Kimberley RCMP are reaching out to the public to assist in an overdue motorcyclist investigation.

Paul Kerr departed his home in Kimberley June 14th around 10:30 a.m. for a motorcycle trip over the Gray Creek Pass on his white and blue 2009 BMW motorcycle with BC license plate S32595.  The trip is estimated to take two to three hours each way, but Paul Kerr has not been seen since he left.

Staff Sgt. Dave Dubnyk of the Cranbrook RCMP said Tuesday afternoon that there has been no progress in finding Mr. Kerr but search teams “have not let their foot off the gas”.

“We have seven search and rescue teams, from Elkford, Sparwood, Fernie, Creston, Invermere, Kimberley and Cranbrook. There is lots of ground searching going on. There are fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. But unfortunately as of this minute, there is no sign of Mr. Kerr.”

However, Dubnyk said you can’t assume the worst. “You get out on those roads and there are all kinds of arteries. He could have gone exploring and got turned around.

“We will keep searching until we get a break.”

Mr. Kerr is described as a white male, 45 years of age, 5’ 11” tall, slim build, dark brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information pertaining to Mr. Kerr’s whereabouts is asked to contact the nearest police agency.
