On November 10, 2014, the team was called out to assist the RCMP in locating a 66 year old hunter who had been reported missing in the St. Ignace area. At 07:32 on Nov 11, After an all-night search and with the assistance of search teams, the hunter was located by the RCMP Police dog service in a swampy area approximately 1 KM from his ATV. As a result of his extended exposure to sub zero temperatures and due to the lack of proper clothing, he suffered moderate hypothermia and had to be carried out by stretcher. He was then transferred to care of Ambulance NB and transported to hospital.
