Burnaby RCMP is giving the owner of a boat abandoned by the Fraser River one last chance to claim it before it’s taken away.
“It was once no doubt a majestic craft that sailed the seas in splendour; however, now it’s sat on the banks of the Fraser River in Burnaby and needs to be moved,” stated a cheeky police press release Wednesday. “We’re hoping that the owner of the Morning Mist has 'mist' their boat and will claim it."
The beige, 21-foot, fibreglass-hull craft has been moored by the river bank near the 7000 block of Fraser Park Drive since Sept. 4, 2018.
Police have been unable to locate the registered owner and are now working with partner agencies to have it moved.
“Before the boat is moved, we would like to provide the owner one last opportunity to come forward and claim it,” stated the release.
The name of the boat is the Morning Mist and the registration number is 12K57283.
If this is your boat, contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999 and ask to speak with Const. Thomas Walker.
