There appears to be a sense of acceptance that Everett Clow will not be found alive.
The 90-year-old Charlottetown man has been missing since Thursday morning.
An intense, but unsuccessful, search for Clow concluded Sunday.
RCMP Sgt. Andrew Blackadar says police told the Clow family everything possible was done in searching for the man.
The P.E.I. Ground Search and Rescue Team and RCMP Underwater Recovery Team conducted an active ground and underwater search. An active military search was also conducted.
“They (family) were supportive of the efforts up to that point,’’ said Blackadar.
The public has been invited to visit with the family of Clow Tuesday at Belvedere Funeral Home in Charlottetown from 4 to 7 p.m.
A service of remembrance will be held at the Belvedere Funeral Home Chapel on Wednesday at 1 p.m. with a time of refreshment and fellowship to follow immediately at Charlottetown Bible Chapel.
Blackadar says the overall investigation into Clow’s disappearance is continuing as are periodic patrols around the area Clow’s truck was found.
Clow has been missing since Thursday after attending a routine medical appointment around 9:15 a.m. in Hunter River. Police reported that “absolutely no bad news’’ was delivered to Clow by the doctor.
A search ensured and shortly before 10 a.m. Friday, a Parks Canada employee found Clow’s truck parked above a cliff along the Gulf Shore Parkway.
The RCMP are encouraging anyone who saw Clow’s truck, a 2001 burgundy Chevrolet Silverado, to come forward to police.
