One of the two mushroom pickers who disappeared near Terrace, B.C., more than two weeks ago has been found alive.

CN Rail workers found Ike Murray, 26, in the area of Cedervale at around 4 p.m. on Monday, according to Terrace RCMP. He was taken to Mills Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

Terrace Search and Rescue and RCMP have resumed their search for his friend, Michael (Devlin) Sabo, 32.

The two were reported missing on Sept. 22 after they failed to return to a designated meeting place after a day of picking mushrooms in the Lorne Creek area. At its peak, search efforts included a helicopter, the RCMP, the Canadian Rangers and around 150 people combing the grounds.

Hazards in the area include rocky terrain with lots of creeks and cliffs, which had some searchers worried they may have fallen or been pulled away by the river.

Official search efforts had been suspended last week.
