The search for missing mushroom picker Frances Brown has been suspended eight days after it began in northwestern B.C.

Cpl. Madonna Saunderson of the RCMP confirmed searchers did not find any new clues over the weekend. Nineteen search and rescue teams from across B.C. were involved in the effort.

The 53-year-old became lost on Oct. 14 in heavy forest between Smithers and Hazelton after she became separated from her picking companion.

Evidence of a campfire was discovered early on in the search, but rain and snow hampered the effort. 

Saunderson said the search would resume if new information or clues surfaced.
