A search and rescue effort has now become a recovery operation after an angler fell into the Copper River.
Terrace Search and Rescue was called out to the 35km to 40km mark of the Copper River Forest Service Road around 12:30pm.
Initial reports said a man entered the river after his pontoon boat deflated.
A water rescue team of three swift water techs, one helicopter, and two trucks were sent out to search the area.
But at around 2:20pm it was reported recovery operations had begun.
No details so far on the identity of the person, the RCMP, and BC Coroners Service will take over the investigation.
