Valentina Kurshnareva was last seen by a family member on the afternoon of October 3, 2019. It is believed she then walked into the forest to look for mushrooms near her property on Frost Road in Lindell Beach. The property is located near the border of Cultus Lake south of Lindell Beach. Valentina is relatively fit, she knows the area well and frequently walks in the area. The family is concerned that she may have injured herself while walking or gotten turned around in the forest. When she did not return home, she was reported missing on October 3 at 10:45 PM and rescue efforts began with RCMP and Chilliwack SAR Thursday evening and have continued since then. There have been over 30 SAR volunteers on foot since Friday, October 4th. The first two days there were helicopters as well as K9, and ground searchers doing 3m spaced searches due to the thickness of the brush. There are steep slopes and thick brush throughout the entire area with thick canopy making the search difficult. Wings of Mercy began a drone search with a drone in the air on October 9th and will continue with that as conditions and personnel allow. The area between Stoney Mountain Farm and Linely Camp has been searched as well as the areas between Frost Road to the Provincial Park towards Linely Camp. The family has a Facebook Group that they are using to organize search efforts "Missing Valentina Kushnareva: Missing in Columbia Valley/ Cultus Lake"
