3 people who went missing at Shannon Falls found dead

Rescuers survey the cliff face of Shannon Falls Provincial Park as the rescue mission unfolds

The three hikers were part of the Youtube channel "High on aLife Sunday Fundayz" - a group of Vancouver-based travel bloggers aged in their 20s to 30s.

'High on Life' stars Ryker Gamble, Alexey Lyakh, and Megan Scraper are confirmed dead after slipping and falling off a waterfall in Canada into risky waters below.

Lyakh and Gamble lost their footing while trying to help Scraper after she slipped into the surging waters of Shannon Creek, according to witnesses quoted by the Vancouver Sun.

Last year, Ryker Gamble and several other High On Life members were banned from United States federal land for five years, after walking on a sensitive spot near the hot springs in Yellowstone National Park.

They also announced a A GoFundMe page to help pay for a memorial.

Gamble's Instagram page has more than 1.1 million followers.

The deaths were confirmed by Ryker, Megan, and Alexey's friends from High on Life.

"At around 8:30 p.m. last night, teams were able to confirm the location of the three people in one of the lower pools", said a statement released by the RCMP on Wednesday morning. A Mountie says they "were walking along the edge of where the pool would be and at that stage they slipped and fell".

The trio are being remembered in the Youtube community for their love of travel and thirst for adventure. The group aimed to inspire those watching to "embrace all of life's opportunities with a positive outlook and energy".

"Her boyfriend and then another friend attempted to save her", Willcox said, adding friends of the victims reported seeing them carried over the lip of one pool and into a second.

The third person killed was identified as Megan Scraper, Gamble's girlfriend. "Even if you can not provide a donation please post on whatever platform you frequent", the group said in a statement.

In that video, those friends went on to encourage fans to share their own stories about how "High On Life" inspired them.

Gamble, the group's leader, served a short prison sentence in 2016 after filming from a restricted area of Yellowstone National Park in the western US.

"Obviously as you invite more people into the backcountry just by nature of numbers you're going to have more situations where this type of thing may happen".

In a new video posted Friday morning, seven members of the group faced the camera as one of them delivered an emotional tribute to their friends.
