I have been following the story for all the internet will show.
Seems the search has been suspended and finally the Major Crimes unit of the RCMP have been called in.
The hunter that found the horse seemed to think they were searching the wrong area as he had been hunting for a month and hadn't seen any tracks in that area.
After remembering Dale Stevenson's murder I would be checking the manure pile at the ranch and maybe the horse was hauled away and let loose to set the police off the trail,

I've been following it and It certainly doesn't sound good. :cry2:

BMR might be on to something.

Ya when they call in the Queens Cowboys (grc...... gravel road cops, )'Major Crime Unit' there usually is more to the story. I think BMR'S manure pile theory may not be too far off.Sadly.....

B.C. missing cowboy case now treated as suspicious

Fact check: Bill Morneau's budget speech

© Provided by thecanadianpress.com Ben Tyner is shown in an RCMP handout photo. The family of the missing Merritt, B.C. man is pleading for information nearly three weeks after the 32-year-old was last seen. Tyner was the manager of the Nicola Valley ranch in…
SURREY, B.C. - The case of a rancher who has been missing in British Columbia since January is being treated as a suspicious disappearance by the RCMP.
Sgt. Janelle Shoihet says members of the southeast district major crime unit have reviewed the evidence that has been collected since Ben Tyner went missing and have determined the case may involve criminal activity.
Tyner, who is 32, was the manager of the Nicola Ranch, about 300 kilometres northeast of Vancouver, and was last seen on Jan. 26 as he rode out on horseback, possibly to search for cattle in the surrounding hills.
He was reported missing two days later when his saddled horse was found wandering on a logging road off Highway 97 northwest of Merritt.
An extensive search that included RCMP and volunteers on foot and horseback, as well as in helicopters, vehicles and snowmobiles, found no trace of Tyner.
Shoihet says early on investigators requested assistance from major crime detectives, but until this week police had said their was no indication of foul play.
"Now having had the opportunity to review all the pieces, we believe that the circumstances surrounding Mr. Tyner’s disappearance may involve criminality," Shoihet said Tuesday.
Shoihet would not reveal details but she said the latest announcement "reinvigorates" the investigation.
Officers are asking people who may have information but haven't spoken to police to come forward.
"That one missing piece might be something you think is insignificant, but could really be the turn-key piece of information for an investigation like this," Shoihet said in a telephone interview.
Before they left for their home in Wyoming in mid-February, Tyner's family renewed their plea for any tips that might help the police investigation into his disappearance.
"Our hearts are shattered and our lives have been thrown into turmoil,"Tyner's mother Jennifer told a news conference at the time.
"To think that I will never again see his smile, or hear his infectious laugh, never see him realize his dreams, never have him wrap his arms around me again, is unthinkable."


About time, It was suspicious from the start.
