Saturday – Hunting season officially opens today in B.C. and like usual this day is popular with the residents of Sparwood, although today is different. Local hunters have guaranteed that when they head out, they will be hunting for more than big game. Local hunters are familiar with backcountry roads, cabins and shacks and are determined to check them all for anything suspicious. The resounding belief of Sparwood residents is that if he is here, they will search, and they will find him.

Randall Hopley a suspect in the disappearance of Kienan Hebert, has an extremely disturbing history and is known to break in and squat in backcountry cabins. Hopley knows the area, and has frequented cabins in Southern Alberta and B.C. RCMP have issued a public statement encouraging everyone who has a seasonal cabin to check it out for anything suspicious.

In the wee morning hours, Paul Hebert, Kienan’s dad made an update. “We still have nothing as of yet. There are a lot of calls to 911 and they need to be screened out to real leads. The people here have been so awesome, donations, volunteers, professionals, and support groups. This Valley is absolutely amazing. We are in very good hands and we have all the faith that we will have him back. Search and rescue teams are our strength right now to help find crucial clues and evidence. They keep our spirits up when we see them out there, people are coming from coast to coast to volunteer, even some from the states. Thank you all, you leave your homes and families to help bring ours back together, we are so humbled and we just want to thank every one of you for your help and support. Sparwood is the best move I have ever done. Yes one bad man has hurt us and our precious little son, but thousands of good people are giving their all to make it better.”

Search and rescue efforts will resume full force this Saturday and locals remain hopeful for the safe return of Kienan Hebert.
